URGE: what a powerful word with which to describe the insatiable forces of nature. In general this word suggest a persistent inclination or force to completion of an action. Everywhere we look, those forces are being played out to completion or attempted completion. For instance, the waves of an ocean roll on to shore in unrelenting fashion–a rock-slide on a mountain persists until it meets an unrelenting opposite force. Personally, as a farmer and gardener, I have observed thousands of times how living vegetation exhibits those powerful urges to reproduce. In the spring and early summer, a specific weed or grass may grow for weeks and reach considerable height before any sign of seed appear on its stem—it seems to be taking its ‘good ole easy time’ with no sense of urgency. As a matter of principle, there is no urgency—it has all summer to ‘get the job done’. However, in late summer and fall, that same weed or grass sprig may sprout today and show seed formation in just a few days–a dramatic sense of urgency—frost is coming soon and that means death. The species must be reproduced at all cost—there is no time for leisure ‘growth loafing’. In the animal kingdom we observe that same sense of urgency albeit in somewhat different fashion. Typically, the larger, stronger male will challenge all others for the breeding rights to an impatiently waiting female—the survival of the fittest. Humans are little different. The urge for reproduction is unrelenting. The main difference is that humans make an attempt at being civilized in their choice of mate. Given the opportunity, the average human will breed ‘come hell or high water’—and whether or not the opportunity presents itself, the unrelenting ‘urge’ is always there. Throughout the centuries of Christianity’s existence, the Church has attempted to stifle that urge– I have often wondered for what purpose. Was/is it a deliberate attempt to control the masses, or does the Church consider sex to be intrinsically evil? I suspect a tinge of both. The net result of attempting to thwart the second strongest urge in life is the generation of millions and millions of neurotic and or psychotic people. Taylor, in his very astute book Sex In History, described medieval Europe as one giant cesspool of psychosis generated by the Church’s attempts to demonize and suppress sexual activity—the inquisition lives on even till today. The Church can’t physically harm you, but for those who submit to its teachings, the likelihood is they are permanently psychologically harmed. I am convinced that this singular attitudinal teaching of religion is the primary cause of most neurotic disease in the world. As people worldwide have become more educated and introspective, they have abandoned religion as being irrelevant in their lives. This is borne out by statistics which show church attendance to be diminishing steadily. That does not coincide with lack of spirituality in those people—it simply means that their common sense overrides irrational concepts propagated by religion. These concepts and many, many more are drawn out extensively in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both books published by Covenant Books. If you have an ‘urge’ for truth, their readings are mandatory. All comments welcomed. You may like the attached trailer video produced by Covenant Books about Wilderness Cry.
YOUR GOD: Who is your God? Could you define for me the essence of God so I might know your God? Very likely not, for the simple reason that no one before me has ever defined the essence of God. So everyone who utters the word God is referring to a total unknown—therefore there is a different God for every human that ever lived and that amounts to billions and billions. So no wonder there are 33,000 so-called Christian religions in the world and each claiming absolute authority and authenticity. There are the sacrificial Christians who each worship a different phantom God. Then there are the bible thumping Christians who swear and bedamned if everything needed to be known about God is in a book so corrupted as to be scandalous. Each and every preacher and acolyte alike are worshiping a phantom God on a continuing basis. In addition each is making proclamations galore concerning this mythical creature as though they were absolute truths—in fact they all are absolute mythology and phantasy. You may rise up and call me a blasphemer, but you only expose your ignorance. In the first instance, no one can prove the existence of a God—neither can anyone disprove its existence. Only if you can (have) defined the essence of God are you allowed to even utter the word except in an admitted speculative sense and acknowledgement. I have, in fact, defined the essence of God in irrefutable terms. My definition stems from known science and makes it absolutely reasonable but not provable that there is God (Supreme Being). Because of the absolute perfection in both form and function of each and every particle of energy which makes up everything in this universe, it is completely rational to assume that some perfect rationality envisioned, chose, and keeps perfect each of those particles. That understanding prompted, allowed, and demanded my definition of God’s essence—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition says it all—it mandates concept of Trinity—it defines eternity as a perpetual state of no change. It mandates recognition of God’s Will (Love, Holy Spirit) being imprinted on everything in existence—therefore everything is in God and God is in everything. God can neither be pleased nor displeased—something perfect is complete and cannot be changed. So my God is knowable, and its activities are to some extent observable. No longer do we have to rely on the mythology of a flat earth, Zodiac, astrology, and all the other superstitions and mythology associated with concepts of God. We now have a concrete understanding of our creator, sustainer and savior. Therefore, our only legitimate prayer is—thank you Lord God, Jesus. and Holy Spirit (Will of God). Amen. I have written extensively about these subjects in my Books Wilderness Cry (available all on-line outlets and many book stores) And Peace in Spirituality to be released shortly—both books published by Covenant Books.
Holy Spirit—If someone asked you who or what the Holy Spirit is, what would you tell them? Would you be able to give them an absolute essential definition of the HS? Likely not and the reason is readily clear. Before anyone can describe the essence of the HS, he/she must first be able do define the essence of God. Since no one ever before me has defined the essence of God in irrefutable terms, it would be impossible for any person to do so. Most likely, there would be a regurgitation of all the attributes of the HS learned in catechism classes or in bible studies, but no essential definition would be forth coming. So there could not and would not be a clear verbal picture of the essence of HS. One could no more define the essence of the HS than could they define the essence of God unless they had come to the same realization as I did several years ago. In my little book Wilderness Cry- a Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, I do in fact define the essence of God, and in so doing I am able to define the essence of the second person of the Trinity as well as the HS. God is a perfect rational being. That essential definition says it all—nothing can be added or subtracted. Of course a perfect intellect reflecting upon itself sees itself as a perfect mirror image. Since in the supernatural all things are living, that mirror image is alive. So now we have two perfect intellects viewing each other—what choice do they have but to choose, love, accept, will each other? That perpetual choosing, loving, accepting, willing each other is the Will of God, The Holy Spirit. So now, if someone asks you to tell them about the HS, you can speak with authority—no stuttering, jabbering, and spewing euphemisms of no consequence—just the plain, straightforward, factual truth. So now you know. You would do yourself a great service by reading my little book, Wilderness Cry, as well as my soon to be released book, Peace in Spirituality—both published by Covenant Books and available on-line everywhere, as well as all e-books. As a footnote, I might add that none of the biblical writers understand what Jesus was saying—hence the use of the term Ghost. All of their religious concepts were built on superstition, myth, astrology (zodiac)—they still are, and are %100 incorrect. No wonder we have over 33,000 so-called Christian religions in the world—each claiming absolute authenticity. Read my books. Please comment if you like.
TRINITY: How many times in your life have you heard and/or used the word Trinity? More importantly, how have you reacted to its hearing or use? If your experience has been anyway similar to mine, and I strongly suspect it has, then you have been continually inundated with combined feelings of doubt, guilt, anxiety, querulousness, suspicion, bewilderment, and even anger. The reason for all those emotional reactions is simply that we are expected to believe and accept something that nobody can explain—its a mystery we are told and unknowable. Our common rationality kicks into high gear immediately—we are expected to believe something no one can explain? How can that be? I pondered that question for fifty years. Realizing that the concept of Trinity God came from Jesus’ teachings as depicted in the Bible, it occurred to, me that if Jesus were teaching it, understanding should be rather simple. After countless readings of the New Testament, and observing repeated discrepancies, it occurred to me that the writers of the Bible either didn’t understand what Jesus was saying or simply didn’t believe him. From my standpoint it was impossible to determine which, but ultimately, I decided it made no difference—I would make sense of it anyway. The first task was to define the essence of God. That I did with six simple little words—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition says it all. More importantly, it removes all mystery from our lives. All we need do is be humble and accept it—organized religions never have and likely never will. They are not about to give up their Power, Money, Control. However, as an individual seeking truth, those entities are not in my domain—I am free to think rationally and more importantly free to accept the truth where I find it. So here is what I found. The definition of God’s essence a perfect rational being not only allows but demands Trinity. You may explode in derision—just hold on; ,I’m going to “blow you away”. Just what is perfect rationality? It is a Perfect Intellect which perceives all and a Perfect Will which achieves all that the Perfect Intellect perceives. Now consider this—what would a Perfect Intellect reflect upon or perceive? Obviously something perfect if available. Well, the only perfect thing in existence is itself—so that Perfect Intellect reflects upon itself and what does it see?—-a perfect “mirror image” of itself—the Second Person of the Trinity. Since God exists in the Supernatural, that mirror image is a living being also. Now we have two Perfect Intellects perceiving each other. What choice do they have except to accept (love, choose, will) each other. That perpetual willing, loving, choosing each other carries the image of its generator, and is the Will of God—the Holy Spirit. So there you have a clear visual of the Trinity—three identical persons, one God—mystery solved. The solution of that mystery demands a complete about face for the Aristilian, Aquinian philosophy upon which all three Abrahamic religions have been built. Each of those religions have put God here and his creation over there. Jesus told us differently. He said the Kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth about you and you don’t see it. He said “this is my body and this is my blood” meaning that his spirit (the Spirit of God) is in everything and everything is in God. God and his creation are one. Every grain of sand and grain of salt; every drop of water; every gravid object in this universe is branded with the image of God. Every tint particle of energy which makes up every gravid object is perfect in both form and function—it is kept that way by the Holy Spirit (will) of God. In light of all that many fallacies can be laid to rest. The so-called miracles people speak of are figments of imagination. In order for a miracle to happen, God would have to change his nature—a complete impossibility. Something perfect as God is cannot change. Understandably, people want to plead with God to do this or that. That ideation shows a complete lack of understanding of the nature of God. Our only justifiable prayer is “Thank You Trinity God for our existence, for our sustenance and for our salvation. If you want a very clear understanding of these and many more concepts you need to read my book Wilderness Cry, available everywhere and my soon to be released book Peace In Spirituality—both published by Covenant Books.
