EASTER-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngESATER-What a glorious day—so most of us have been taught to think and believe. So, what’s so glorious about Easter? If someone ask you to explain the significance of Easter, what would you tell them?—would you have a definitive answer? I truly would like to hear a few of those answers.

I can hear the ‘thundering multitude’ responding in resounding unison even as I type—‘Easter is the day Jesus rose from the dead’. And I say, ‘so what, what does that mean?. What does that have to do with anything?’ Have you ever asked yourself that question?—what did Jesus’ resurrection mean to you? Oh you probably have been told by your preachers and/or bible school teachers that Jesus’ resurrection carried ‘great significance’—but can you explain the significance? I can’t. The point is, in physical terms,Jesus’ so-called resurrection is a myth, and here is why.

The Jews were so imbued with the idea that when the long-awaited Messiah finally would appear  he would immediately restore an earthly paradise just for them. When Jesus finally appeared after hundreds of years of long-suffered waiting, the selfish Jews were impatient—-they wanted paradise ‘now’. Jesus, however , perceived a giant load of work to be done—the Jews thought process had to be changed dramatically. They had learned a philosophy of a punitive God who could love them one minute and viciously turn on them the  very next second—such was the schizophrenic nature of their ‘one true God’.

IMG_0082When Jesus began speaking and teaching of an ‘all loving God’, the Jews mind-set just was not ready nor capable of accepting such a philosophy. Jesus was quite aware of their attitude—he recognized that his task was severe, but he accepted the challenge. Knowing full well that his message would not be well accepted by the Jewish hierarchy, Jesus stayed in the shadows trying desperately to educate his apostles and followers to his ‘new commandments of love’—God and neighbor. It seems very doubtful that he ever succeeded—-We’ll never know.

After three plus years, Jesus could see plainly that he was getting ‘nowhere’ (so it seems from the writings we have); he grew impatient; he knew the task at hand. So, he marches off to the seat of corruption and evil, Jerusalem. He had come to the stark realization that he was the messiah, ‘the chosen one’, the Christ who was to die for the amelioration of all the evil in the universe. Parenthetically, I might add Jesus name was Jesus, the Christ; not Jesus Christ—there’s a momentous difference in both meaning and understanding.

He was steadfast and firm in his conviction—his glib followers were seemingly like half-witted nitwits. They didn’t have a clue—at least that’s what the ‘book’ we have says—who really knows? When Jesus deliberately confronted the Jewish hierarchy with their cunning and chicanery and open-faced thievery in the name of God, it was more than they could take—he had to go. Of course, that was the ‘Devine plan’ all along. Jesus just used the cunning Jews as an instrument of execution.

So, they killed him—they hung him ignominiously on a tree for all the world to see—see what happens to traitors!

IMG_1065But what about the ‘Resurrection’?—Jesus had told his followers he ‘first had to die’. In their greed and exclusionary demeanor, they had to have a recreation of Paradise and they had to have it now. They could see plainly that Jesus was dead—-he had to come right back to finish the job. That meant he had to ‘raise from the dead’ and ‘ascend into heaven’—the ‘second coming ‘ was both mandatory and immanent. Therein lies Paul’s injunction to his followers to ‘abandon their usual lifestyles of marriage, family, children, etc.; put on a holy face and prepare for Jesus immanent return—maybe tomorrow’ (paraphrased).

Well, its been roughly two thousand years—Paul has been dead nineteen hundred and fifty years and no second coning yet. Guess what, ‘it ain’t happening’. Its a myth dreamed up by the selfish Jews and perpetuated by every religion I have personally known of; and for why? Power, money, control.

Have you ever felt somebody’s hand in you pocket?—hold on to your pocketbook. Have you ever noticed how each of the 33,000 so-called Christian religions claim forthrightly to be ‘the only correct one’?—I have. Have you ever noticed how a new church with a ‘new slant’ on Jesus and his ‘word’ springs up on literally every street corner annually?—I have. Have you ever wondered why that is? I have—money, power, control.

So, if I ask you the significance of Easter, what would you say?

JESUS DIES-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJESUS DIES—Here we go again. If I were to ask a thousand so-called Christian people why Jesus died, I suspect I’d get a conglomerate of answers. Some answers would likely be straight forward and certain but many would be vague and/or confused or even contradictory.

One category would tell me with absolute certainty and authority that Jesus Died to save us from our sins and guarantee our entry into heaven. That same group might hastily add that the more good we do, the  higher place in heaven we get.

Another group might say that Jesus died so that  our sins might be forgiven but not guaranteed—-we must pray, beg and plead with God in every way possible which might included all sorts of self-sacrifices, personal bodily torment and good works. In addition they would suggest a heavy reliance on the supplication of the Church and the saints already in heaven on our behalf. However, in spite of all that, the likelihood is we’d be required to spend considerable time in purgatory burning away the stain of sin from our soul before entry into heaven would be allowed.

A third group would tell me forthrightly that Jesus died so he could go to heaven and then come back some day and  pronounce judgement on everyone—the good ones he would welcome with open arms into the  new paradise  he just created—the bad ones would be cast in the fires of hell for all eternity.

IMG_0082Then there is a fourth group who would tell me Jesus died because the Jews didn’t like him—he was a traitor—he was teaching heresy. So, he got the treatment all traitors got—death by crucifixion.  The world was full of zealots in Jesus’ time—they all got the same treatment.

Then there would be a significant number who would offer some sort of mixture of the above ideas.

Having said all that, all I wanted was just one of them to ask me ‘why Jesus died’—I was jest itching for a chance to tell them what I thought.

You see, my God is a Perfect Rational Being. He exists in eternity, a state of being in which no time nor change is possible. Therefore, heaven must be a state of being—no higher nor lower places. In addition, Jesus recognized that he, we, and everything in existence was a ‘mirror image’ of its creator’. Jesus could clearly see that everything in existence was selfish—God made it to be that way so he could show his ‘perfect love’ through his own sacrificial death in the person of his image, Jesus. Therefore, Our salvation is guaranteed—God’s perfect love cannot possibly reject himself. The idea of a second coming, new paradise here on earth, purgatory and hell are all impossible.

Likewise a physical resurrection is impossible—God would have to change his nature and that is impossible.

IMG_1065What did happen is this—through his teaching and death, Jesus ‘turned on the lights of God’s truth and love’. He became the Christ—the light of the universe. He demonstrated for all to see the perfect love of God.

Ask yourself one simple question—did Jesus save you by his sacrificial death?—or did Jesus save you by his resurrection? From my perspective, any resurrection would be meaningless without the sacrificial death.

Again I am renewing my call for The World-wide Communion of Spirituality.

PALM SUNDAY- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPALM SUNDAY-Today, world-wide, Christians are celebrating  Palm Sunday.  It is the day which marks Jesus’ heroic and triumphant enter into Jerusalem. It is known as Palm Sunday because the citizens attending the event cut palm branches and spread them on the path before him. Have you ever wondered why they did that?–I have. Also I have wondered just who all those people were. In addition, I have chucklingly thought what today might have been called if Jesus had approached the temple in Paducah, Kentucky in July—Maple Sunday, Oak Sunday, Ash Sunday, Willow or Birch Sunday? I’m not wise-cracking—I’m serious.

The Catholic Christians do, in fact, make a big to-do about the palm. They march in a procession of sorts with palm branches over their shoulders. The palm is then taken home and the artistic ones among us  weave all sorts of crosses and Christian emblems out of it before it dries, Other less fanciful may simply double it on itself and stick it behind a crucifix or holy picture hanging on the wall. The left over palm is saved and burned to ashes which are applied to penitents foreheads the following Ash Wednesday. The point is, the palm is revered as having some special significance.

IMG_0082I suppose the question remains why was the palm spread on the ground in the first place and secondly, why were there so many people in attendance. In the first instance, it is likely that the dirt road was muddy, and the palm provided a clean, dry pathway. Jesus, you will recall was riding an ass and would not been concerned with muddy roads. His apostles and close followers, however,  were walking and most likely would have greatly appreciated the cover. Now to the second consideration—why so many cheering people? Jesus spent his entire teaching career in the shadows, out of the lime-light so as not to rattle the ire of the king, high priest and elders.

It seems likely to me that there two sets of people in attendance that day—one set were Jesus’ true followers—the others were those who sensed a ‘big showdown’ and didn’t want to miss the show. Jesus, himself, was steady as a rock—he was on a mission.

When time for the show arrived, the crowd was ready. Jesus had influenced many followers, but it seems obvious to me that most of them, including his apostles did not comprehend his message—they scattered like sheep running in terror from a wolf—seems to me like they still are. The bulk of the Jews present knew Jesus was teaching heresy and were quite willing to sentence him to crucifixion—the death mode reserved for treason. His friends were terrified—only one of them attended.

IMG_1065I spoke of Jesus’ heroic and triumphant entry into Jerusalem. It was certainly heroic because Jesus, undoubtedly, had witnessed many crucifixions—he understood what a horrific death it was, but he also knew why his mission was so important and necessary—-the salvation of the entire universe(s) lay before him. It was indeed triumphant, because he had overcome his fear—he was now steadfast and ready for what lay ahead. His apostles seemed not to have a clue—to them it was just another stroll in the park up until the last minute.

So now that Covid-19 has put a damper on most of the ecclesiastical blame-game, penitents can be a little more detached  from the distraction of  all the ritual, and be a little more attached to the real meaning  of Palm Sunday.

Yes, we all are selfish sinners—yes, so is every existence. Yes, genius Jesus saw that. He knew that our God and mirror image had allowed us and all creation to be that way for one very specific reason—so he could be and show his perfect love—-Jesus was his agent. Every other consideration in my estimation is not only superfluous but, rather, distracting from the real truth and understanding.

Thank you Lord God, Jesus and Holy Ghost (will of God). Amen.

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.

MIRACLE OR MYTH-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngMIRACLE or MYTH-Do you ‘believe’ in miracles—have you ever witnessed (experienced) one? If so, what do you believe took place with your miracle? Was your miracle a ‘physical’ event or, an emotional or spiritual experience? If you have experienced what you believe was a miracle, to what do you attribute it? These are all sincere and important questions when considering such matters.

During my eighty six years, I expect that I have heard that term  miracle or miraculous  used at least a million times. Most often it has been used to express delight at some occurrence or unexpected outcome. Some examples would be: ‘its a miracle she didn’t drown when her car went into ditch’, or ‘it is just miraculous how that skidding car missed little Johnny playin in the road.

More often than not, I have witnessed on social media hundreds of  people express certainty of a miraculous outcome for a rather trivial event. For instance, ‘I’m going to have a colonoscopy in the AM. Please pray that all will be well’ and then the inevitable pile-on effect—prayers, prayers, praying etc. Two hours after colonoscopy completed, ‘Great news, nothing serious. Bleeding was from a little hemorrhoid. God is soooo good’. Quite obviously, most would be happy with a relatively normal test result, but to attribute it to God’s partiality is too big a stretch for me. Lets assume for the moment that the colonoscopy showed an advanced cancer which oftentimes it does, would that mean that God is soooo bad, and to top it all off—all those prayers?

IMG_0082So just what are we talking about here? I think, without doubt, what we’re talking about is happiness at good news and sadness and fear from bad news—two perfectly normal human emotions. Also the prayers that everyone pours on are really expressions of love and support—if they are truly addressed to God with the expectation that God will intervene and ‘remove’ a large cancer before the endoscopist gets there is ludicrous and terribly selfish. Does that mean that God loves you more than someone else who may, in fact, have many more prayers being advanced? Unwittingly, that is the attitude readily and frequently advanced by many.

Before we fall off the deep end of reality about miracles, we must define what exactly we’re talking about. More importantly we must have a thorough understanding about what we’re asking and ‘expecting’ God to do. In fact, we ‘must’ know who this God is—seems like no one knows. Well, I’m here to tell you. my God is a Perfect Rational Being. That means simply that ‘physical miracles’ are an absolute impossibility. By a physical miracle, I mean a totally unnatural change in a ‘natural’ event. An example might be, someone born with crippling cerebral palsy suddenly becoming perfectly normal. In order for that to happen, major, major changes would have to occur in that person’s central nervous system, as well as in  his/her musculoskeletal system. It can’t happen. Let’s examine why.

If God is Perfect, and who can deny hat he is, change is impossible—something perfect is absolutely whole and complete—it can’t be improved upon nor be detracted from—it can be neither pleased nor displeased—neither helped nor hurt—it is perfect. So this Prefect God with his Prefect Intellect perceived his only creation—all of the perfect little particles of energy which make up everything in this universe. Those tiniest, indivisible particles are collectively known as Quanta (plural for quantum). There are several different denominations, but each of its kind is absolutely perfect in both form and function. Furthermore, each of its kind is indistinguishable from it counterparts. In addition there is not a single one more or less today than at the moment of their creation 13.7-8 billion years ago. Collectively, they are a mirror image of God, an image we call the Second Person of the Trinity. Because these particles are perfect and unchanging, they exist in eternity, as does God. When God views his creation, it views him in return and they viewing each other love what they see—that perpetual loving, choosing , willing, we call the Holy Spirit, the Will Of God. That Will of God is what keeps each particle perfect.

IMG_1065Strangely, every material object in existence is perpetually chancing in a very universally selfish universe. However, each object’s substrate (building blocks) are unchanging in eternity—-they are God.

So you see, physical miracles are impossible—God cannot possibly change his Perfect Nature. You do remember the Magi who were ‘astrologers’—they could interpret the stars—they could perform miracles—they were, in fact, magicians. They certainly exerted a lasting effect on the mentality and, I might add, the gullibility of the human race. They were smart alright—they knew well how to trick and fleece people. Guess what, they’re still doing it.

Over the last two hundred years or so, God’s light began to shine on the human race. Little by little, God came out of hiding and exposed himself through the likes of Galileo, Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein and many others. We now have a good ‘inkling’ into God’s basic nature, and that is Perfect Rationality. That Perfection cannot change.

Rather than being bedogged with what I consider foolish  ideas, content yourself with reality. You will find ultimate happiness by total resignation to God’s Will. Again you may ask, ‘just what is God’s Will’? And I say God’s Will is each and every occurrence of any kind since the beginning of time and continuing until there is no time. God will not and cannot alter the course of natural events. Each of us is a byproduct of each and every one of our lives’ experiences (seen and unseen) from and before the moment of our conception—we inherited much of what we are and we were built by the rest. Each of us has a certain physical destiny and that is death by one cause or another. More importantly, each of us has a certain eternal destiny  and that is eternal bliss with our God— expect no miracles—that’s miracle enough. Mythology is a trap.

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.

TRINITY GOD-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngTRINITY GOD-Most Likely, whether or not you are a so-called Christian, you have heard of Trinity God. More than likely, if you are Christian, you have used some version of that expression hundreds, maybe thousands of times. Most of us have been so inculcated with the term that we use it without even thinking about what we’re really saying—as a matter of fact, we can’t realistically think about what we’re saying—we’ve been told emphatically that its a mystery and is unintelligible to us mere mortals. In spite of that fact, priests and preachers alike world-wide spit out that term or those terms with such voracious rapidity as to make it seem like common everyday horse-sense knowledge. Everybody knows what the Trinity is—its the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, right? Oh yes, but just wait a minute……

Have you ever asked one of those preachers to explain the Trinity to you and if so, what response did you get. Most likely, a response like a fish wriggling off a shallow-set hook. They’ll respond—well, its God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. In modern times, they may use Holy Spirit instead of Holy Ghost—Ghost sounds too scary. Guess what, up until forty-fifty years ago, the word Ghost was the common usage. It was the word Jesus used—in a different language of course.

So, lets try a different angle to milk a meaningful answer  out of them—preacher, tell me who God the Father is. And forthrightly you’ll get a barrage of ‘God the Father is Creator of the world’. But who is God the Farther preacher? Well, I just told you. ‘he’s creator of the world. But preacher, tell me about just who this God is—what is its basic essence that gave her such ability? Hmm, essence?—not sure I can do that.

Well Preacher, who is God the Son? Oh, well, that’s easy; he is Jesus, God’s Son. Well how does God go about having a Son; I thought God was invisible so, how could he have a human son. Well, you know, God miraculously impregnated a virgin and Jesus was the product. Oh I see. Well tell about the Holy Ghost—where did it come from? I’m not sure I can explain that to you, but Jesus mentions him in the Bible. Oh, ok. Who wrote the Bible preacher? Oh, a bunch of people. Well if it were written by a ‘bunch of people’ how do we know its true? Because its the ‘inspired word of God. What do you mean by the ‘inspired word of God’ preacher? It means that, even though humans wrote, God was creating thoughts in their minds to keep them from making a mistake. So, Father, how do we know that? Because the Pope said so and the Pope is never wrong about such things,. Well how do we know the Pope is never wrong (infallible). Well that’s simple, he said so—he declared himself so. He declared a dogma that made himself infallible under certain circumstances, and the inerrancy of the bible is one of them. Oh, ok, I get it.

IMG_0082But what I don’t understand is why there are hundreds of versions of the Bible and no two of them say the same thing. At the same time, there have been/are billions of interpretations of what the Bible says. How come? If the Bible is inerrant and the ‘inspired’ word of God, how is it possible for God to stay completely mixed up and confused? Well, to tell you the truth, all those other folks are ‘dead-wrong’—mime/ours is the  only correct one. Really? How do you know that? Well, because that’s what ‘my church” believes. Oh, I see—just because you ‘believe it’ that makes it so? Well, in my mind it does.

Now I get the picture—we have billions of people over the ages ‘believing’ stuff which they imagine from one source or another and proclaiming it to be the authoritative ‘word of God’—a God they talk about incessantly, but one whose  essence they cannot define. They speak of mysteries and Ghosts and all sorts of things like miracles, and all the while ‘swearing and bedamning’ to be the only correct one. Furthermore, their certainty has been such as to justify perpetual torment and eternal wars among and between each other.  Who in hell is this God that they cannot define—what is this Trinity they cant define—I’ll tell you post-haste—not even in the field of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics) does the  principle of uncertainty  run that rampant.

The very first thing that must be done in order to have a clear picture of the Trinity is to define the  essence of God—something I have done, but never done before me.  It brings a graphic picture of the Trinity into clear focus.   God is a Perfect Rational Being.  So what does that mean? I’ll break it down word for word for you.

1-When we say God, it means we accept there is God, the absolute only ‘faith’ required. No one can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God, but my understanding of Quantum Mechanics make it very logical to accept a concept of God.

2-When we say is, we mean ever present; not yesterday, nor tomorrow.

3-When we say a,  we mean singular—none other.

4-When we say Perfect,  we mean complete, nothing missing—cannot be pleased nor displeased—cannot change nor be changed—exists in eternity.

5-When we say Rational  we mean an Intellect which perceives and a Will which achieves.

6-When we say  Being, we mean it exists.

IMG_1065Now that we have defined God’s essence, we are now free to explore its ‘accidents’—accidents are those features that make something the specific one of its kind. That brings us to the ‘second person’ of the Trinity. One may legitimately ask, ‘what would a prefect intellect reflect upon?’ The logical answer would be ‘something perfect’ if it existed. Since the only perfect thing in existence is God’s perfect intellect, he looks inward, and what does he see?—a perfect mirror image of himself. Of course, since everything in the supernatural is living, that image is living—the second person of the Trinity. Wait just one minute, you may say—‘I thought Jesus was the second person of Trinity?’. And I say all of God’s image (creation) is second person—Jesus was the representative of God’s entire reflective creation—he was the only one of us to understand that principle—he assumed the role of messiah for the entire universe. However, collectively the entire universe(s) is a reflection of God’s Perfection.

Now that we have defined God the Father and God the Son, what about the Holy Ghost. Well, believe it or not, that’s the easy part. Just consider this—what choice would two Perfect Intellects have when viewing each other—could they possibly ‘reject’ each other? No way—their only choice is to  love (accept, choose, will) each other. That perpetual Loving, Accepting, Choosing, Willing each other carries the image of its generators—It is the Holy Ghost—the Will of God— the Third Person of Trinity.

So there you have a perfectly clear image of the Trinity. That understanding carries many, many ramifications all of which are contrary to organized religion of any kind world-wide. If you would like to explore that understanding farther, please read my little books, Wilderness Cry first; then Peace in Spirituality.

JESUS, OUR BROTHER-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJESUS, OUR BROTHER– Somewhere in one of the hymns we sing at Catholic mass, Jesus is referred to as ‘our brother’. I have often wondered how Catholics in general consider that notation—or if they consider it at all. So many  hymns and prayers are oft repeated so as to become ritualistic—memorized and repeated without specific thought or attention to meaning. Its much more fun to be critiquing someone’s dress, or hair-do, or replaying the winning hole of golf  from yesterday’s game, than to be concentrating on the boring ritual of memorized prayer or song.

Also, somewhere in the Old Testament (I’m too lazy to look it up), one of our Sunday mass scripture readings states that ‘behold, a virgin shall give birth’ (paraphrased). That, of course, is  foretelling Jesus’ virgin conception and birth. It is specifically noteworthy that the New Testament writers repeatedly fashioned their stories about Jesus so that such and such happened ‘that the scripture might be fulfilled’. In other words, the dreamy ideas of the Old testament writers had to be brought to living fruition by the Jewish and Greek writers—truth was of no consideration. All of that is completely understandable when we realize that all of their ideas were based on astrology plus the declaration that they could talk directly with God and even bargain with him—at least, that’s what The Old Testament says. I don’t believe it and, in condensed form,  I’m about to tell you why.

IMG_0082Jesus is, in fact, our brother. He was made of identically the same particles of energy as you and I. And, as I have elucidated many times before, everything that ever existed in the physical world is made of identically the same energy. Those energy particles are perfect and unchanging just as God is perfect and unchanging—therefore they exist in eternity as does God—they, in fact, are God. I am allowed to say that because I have defined the essence of God—God is a Perfect Rational Being.

God’s Perfect Intellect designed those particles directly from his nature—with his Perfect Will (Love) he made and keeps them perfect. They all exist in eternity as God because of their perfection—yet all of their created objects, including us, exist in a perpetually changing physical world. So, without question, Jesus is brother to us, as well as, to every grain of sand in existence. Does that help you understand your soul?—your soul is God—you are temples of the Holy Spirit, just as Paul said.

The Holy Spirit is not a Paraclete (one who accompanies or walks beside you), the Holy Spirit is in you. No one can ‘impart’ the Holy Spirit upon you—it already does and always has, from the moment of your conception, resided in you—it is your soul, your life giving principle.

IMG_1065Now back to the ‘virgin birth’—from a rational standpoint, it is an impossibility—all so-called physical miracles are an impossibility. In order for a physical miracle to occur, God would have to change his nature—God is Perfect and incapable of changing anything. If he ‘changed’, he would slip out of eternity back into time—there is no time in eternity. Time is a measure of change—eternity is a state of being without change (time).

It is quite obvious to me that, based on the literature we have, no one knew nor understood who Jesus really was, nor what his real message was/is. My deduction tells me Jesus only message was love (acceptance). He asked us to accept God and each other, while he, as a mirror image of God, was accepting the entire universe of selfishness (evil).

Jesus, our brother, was our representative—he was the only entity of the entire  reflected image (second person of Trinity) of God to comprehend the presence of God in everything. He was the only entity to see and understand the universal evil of selfishness. He was the only entity to recognize that God’s Perfection demanded Perfect Love. He was the only entity to recognize that Perfect love must be demonstrated—otherwise it was meaningless. He was the only entity to recognize that since he, himself, was the only one to understand that principle, he was the Messiah—he had to pay the price—that, he did willingly.

Jesus was super-genius—Jesus is  our brother.

For complete elucidation of these principles, please read my two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—Press Releases and video trailers of each produced by Covenant Books attached.

SACRIFICE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSACRIFICE- now here’s a word that imparts a feeling of dread and drudgery, and well it should. How many times in our daily lives we are called to sacrifice our time, energy, talents and money for others. Most often it is for our family members, but frequently it may be for neighbors, friends or even total strangers. The question is ‘why do we do that?’. One might answer in various ways—sense of duty, sympathy, empathy (do unto others….). Regardless of the exact reason or attitude, sacrifice is always done because of one basic value and that is  love.

Love is the eternal joy of  acceptance we experience in knowing we have helped someone in need, whatever that need may be. We all, in one way or another, tend to be sacrificial in our attitude toward others—some of us more readily willing than others. I seems from a psychological standpoint that the easier life has been for us the less urgency we feel to sacrifice for others. Some might consider that to be  selfish and, indeed, many times it might be. However, I suspect that more often it is due to lack of awareness—if you haven’t experienced it, you may not appreciate it. So I suppose we could say that difficulties in life can be chastening.

IMG_0082So what’s my point—don’t allow yourself to get caught in the trap of judgmentalism. Just because a person may seem to you to be insensitive, it may not be the case at all. Just because you as a specific individual may think of yourself as being extremely self-sacrificing, never allow yourself to be critical of other’s seeming disregard. Remember, all of your sacrificial activity  carries with it a trail of selfishness—you get sense of self-satisfaction. Be careful not to let yourself be perceived as a do-gooder or, worse yet, holier than thou.

In the universe of religion, I have observed two basic forms of sacrifice. The Catholics and their ‘near mimickers’, through their priests, offer sacrifice directly to God just as the Jewish High Priest did. That sacrifice, of course is intended to appease God and cause him to think more kindly of us—we become more holy and hopefully more likely to attain heaven. The non-sacrificial Christians seem to think of  their sacrificial good works as storing up Brownie points so they will get a higher place in heaven. Does selfishness get any worse than to take it right to heaven?

Of course, all of that thinking is reasonable because of the way we all have been indoctrinated. We all have been taught to think of heaven as a place—in reality, a new Paradise where we will all be happy running around laughing and talking—greeting aunt Susie and uncle Joe—might even run into grandpa. There’s one thing for certain though—those who just barely make it through the gate will be so far away from God as to get only an occasional glimpse of him—maybe once a month.

Now we all know its been almost two thousand years since Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice. He was suppose to come right back and set up this utopian paradise immediately after ascending into heaven—he had to get cleaned up first. At least that’s what the know-it-all  Paul told us—and he got his information directly from God—not sure exactly how. If we can believe anything in the Bible, that’s what he said.  He scolded people for leading ordinary lives  getting married, working, having kids etc. He told them they were wasting their time. He told them to ‘put on a holy face’ and get ready for Jesus—he was coming back, maybe tomorrow.

Its quite obvious that someone got their wires crossed  terribly bad. Now here’s what I think happened. After Jesus’ death, there was mass confusion about who he was, what he represented, why he died and what was to happen next. At the very least, he was recognized as the Messiah. Since the Jews had always expected the Messiah to restore Paradise, they had to make it happen in their minds. They knew Jesus was dead—they saw it happen. So what then? What happened to the Savior? Were they wrong in their recognition?—he had to be the one.

In order to make their wishes come true, Jesus had to rise from the dead and ascend into heaven and then ‘come back’ to restore the Kingdom. The “talk on the street’ was so florid and self-convincing that it instantly became ‘fact’. Paul couldn’t understand why those Jews were willing to sacrifice themselves to his torment. So, he inquired why they were willing to accept such aggravation. Their explanation was so convincing that Paul had a hysterical fit—it scared the wits out of him. Hence his explanation of how he came by his information—he didn’t know whether he was ‘in the body or out of the body’. I believe he was simply terrified to think that he had been tormenting God himself—-couldn’t get no scarier than that—tormenting God?

IMG_1065My take is simply that ‘its all wrong’. My God is Perfect Rationality. He/she/it exists in eternity. Eternity is a state if being where there can be no change (time). God, being perfect, cannot possibly be pleased or hurt—allowing such would expose an imperfection. Jesus was the ‘only’ sacrifice of consequence. Jesus was genius—he saw the universal evil of selfishness—he recognized that the Spirit of God was in everything including him—he saw that in order for God to show his ‘perfect love’ to the world, he, Jesus must die in atonement for all the evil in the universe. He did so graciously but not without great fear and anguish—I can’t imagine such. God is heaven. We and everything in existence are in God and of God.

Just think on this please—if we could experience ‘pleasure’ at seeing aunt Susie, we couldn’t possibly be in heaven because pleasure means change and change means time—there is no time in eternity. Heaven is a state of ‘Perfect Happiness’ with no ‘human element’ of emotional change possible.

So back to ‘sacrifice” We sacrifice out of love—love of self, love of neighbor , and love of God—the absolute only command Jesus gave us. And Jesus Gave us God’s Prefect Love which means it is impossible for God to ‘dislike’ any one of us or anything.

I sincerely wish you each would read my little books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Your eyes would be opened to a new world. I know that many of you have read and I am grateful for your sake. For those who have not I’m attaching a Press Release and video trailer for each.

UNDERSTANDING-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngUNDERSTANDING- Oh, what a beautiful word. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone in the world could have the same understanding—there would be no disagreements, no hostility—only loving acceptance of each other—there would be peace. We can, but will we?

Anyone who follows my writings and comprehends them knows that common  understanding  is my goal. Some of you may feel threatened by my philosophy. Others may be angered and others may be bewildered. There are many, however, who seem to understand and are grateful for my contribution to their understanding.

Many of you are aware that I have presented my  foolproof  pathway to understanding in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality.  Those two books, which are echoed in my frequent blog posts, lay out an irrefutable understanding of God, his universe, and our relationship with both.

IMG_0082By defining the essence of God as  a perfect rational being, I am able to show that the ‘miniscule’ image of God as portrayed in the Old Testament and perpetuated by all three Abrahamic religions has been and still is the single-most major deterrent to peace that the world has ever known. Each group, in turn, has envisioned a certain ill-defined image of that being and ,simultaneously, proclaimed it with absolute certainty to be the only correct one. That, of course, has established immediate hostility.

In similar fashion, each group has developed a system of appeasement of that vengeful God—those systems are known as religion. As of 2014 there were 33,000 such so-called Christian religions in the world. I say so-called because each claims Jesus as its head, but each, simultaneously, professes a different Jesus, Their claims, of course, are based on the Bible, a book which has been altered thousands of times to suit each group’s imagination.

Now, having that awareness has compelled me to seek a solution to the problem. Since we recognize religion, without question, to be the cause of the hostilities, what is the solution. Plain and simple, we must come to a ‘common understanding’. And how may we do that? The very first step is to have a distinctive, irrefutable definition of the essence of our God, so that everyone starts on the ‘same page’.

IMG_1065I have given that essential definition, and from it flows the automatic answers to all our dilemmas, mysteries, and quandaries. Because that definition refutes literally every tenet of every religion, I may be perceived as hostile to religion. I am not hostile—I am realistic and I am asking you to be realistic.

I’m no dummy—as Willy Nelson would say, ‘I wasn’t born no yesterday’. I am fully aware that almost all of us were inculcated in the tenets of a specific religion, and likely, that inculcation was explicit and exclusive of all others—I know mine was. So if you, as an individual, are willing to drop your shoulders, calm your bristles, and join your neighbors in a loving common understanding, then we can eventually have peace. It won’t come from the ‘top down’—no movement ever does. It must start with you and you and you and you……….

When enough  ‘yous’ join together, the ‘brass’ will take note—oh, they will try desperately hard to hold on—eventually they will relinquish and accommodate— what a glorious day!!!

Understand, I am not in any way demeaning you or your religion. I am simply pointing out the misguided  way   of all religion, and pleading for your gracious acceptance and understanding  of a better way.

I encourage you to “put my philosophy to the test’—study hard and offer me a scientific and philosophically  solid refutation. If you can, I’ll graciously listen—if you can’t, join me in a communion of understanding. Very simply put, we and everythin in existence are of ‘one commom substance (energy)’ in that Perfect Ratioinal Being we call God. All is of One Spirit. That is why I make persistent calls for the recognition and acceptance of the World-wide Communion of Spirituality. Pray thay we may have that ‘Common Understnding’.

If you have not read my two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality, I sincerely encourage you to do so. You will gain so much insight and understanding.
