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.

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.

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. Published by Covenant Books, they are available all on-line vendors, hard-copy and e-books. Press Releases and video trailers attached.

CHANGE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngCHANGE- now here’s an interesting word for you that you might not have thought of in a philosophical or scientific way. In the common usage, it means to make or become different. Change, of course, involves an element of time, even if it is only a millisecond. In fact, time is a ‘measure of change’. In the natural world of physicality, we observe millions, even billions of changes, and we calibrate those events in units of time. However, in the supernatural world, we recognize that change is impossible—that is because the supernatural world exist in ‘eternity’, a state of being where no change is possible. If change were possible, it could not be eternity because it would have a beginning progressing to an end—a complete violation of our concept of eternity.

You may ask, what’s this all about, and I shall explain. This simple little concept completely negates all of our precepts about God and the universe as portrayed in the Bible and by Abrahamic religions in general. However, our knowledge of ‘particle physics’ (Quantum Mechanics) sheds a completely different light on concepts of a Supreme Being (call it what you may). Please allow me to explain.

IMG_0082Every physical object in the universe including all that is unseen (gases) is composed of identical particles of energy which are collectively known as quanta (pleural for quantum). A quantum is the tiniest particle of energy in existence—it cannot be farther subdivided. There are different varieties with specific names such as photon, electron, quark, boson, etc. Each of its kind is identical to its counterparts and has no distinguishing differences from them. Each exists in a state of perfection both in form and function and are incapable of change.  There is not a single one in existence today that was not in existence at the moment of the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago—neither is there a single one less. Obviously, since they are unchanging and perfect, we must acknowledge that they exist in eternity.

Isn’t it startling, then, to realize that everything physical in this universe which is constantly changing is made up of energy which exists in eternity and unchanging?

I think so and the implications are stupendous. We are obliged to recognize that our God is Perfect Energy manifested through Prefect Rationality.  We are forced to accept the concept that God is, in fact , in everything, verifying Jesus’ proclamation—‘split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a rock and you will find me there’. We are forced to accept the validity of my definition of God’s essence  as being perfect rationality. We are forced to recognize that truth in Paul’s assertion that ‘we are temples of the Holy Spirit’.  We are not only free but rather mandated to recognize that physical miracles are impossible—God, the substrate of nature, is perfect and unchangeable. We are forced to recognize that the miniscule caricature of God as described in the Bible is demeaning. We are forced to recognize that God’s Perfect Love precludes any possible concept of either Hell or a ‘heaven where some get higher places’—God cannot possibly love any part of his creation more than another.

IMG_1065A Perfect Loving God cannot possibly be vindictive,. Neither can he be changing his mind about anything —you see, that word change takes God right out of ‘eternity’ and into our world of mythology—another impossibility. So with that understanding, we are not justified in begging God to do something he cannot possibly do.

It is a great source of consternation to me to hear people constantly proclaiming that God performed a miracle for the most miniscule of their wishes. Did it ever occur to anyone that thousands of people die and are maimed worldwide daily and all the while ‘begging’ God for a miracle. Is it possible that their loving creator could have total disregard for their pleas, many of which come from the most devout people on earth, while at the same time paying total heedence to someone’s relatively miniscule request? I don’t think so, but I recognize the source—total misguidance and possibly deliberate deception by religious instructors. (Please never forget that snakes can talk, at least once upon a time they did).

Lets get it straight—God is in all things. Whatever happens is ultimately Gods Will working through the natural process of his eternal creation—nature taking its course. Certainly, doctors, nurses, appropriate medications and therapies may and often do assist in the healing process, but ultimately, it is God’s eternal perfect nature at work. You may think of it as a ‘miracle’ and I suppose to many it may seem that way, but I would suggest to you that rather than ‘begging’ God to do something, your only justifiable address to your God is a great big thank you God for my life, for my sustenance, and my salvation by your perfect love through Jesus. I believe that anything else is selfishness beyond the cause.

So, a seemingly simple little word like change  may have major, major implications—think on that please.

Covenant Books has published both of my books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality,  dealing extensively with these subjects. Press Releases and video trailers for each are attached.

SIN-Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSIN-Just what is sin and where did the idea of sin come from? Well, in the first instance, the Book Of Genesis tells us that Eve disobeyed God’s command and ate of the ‘forbidden fruit’. Consequently every human and animal alike have been branded with the curse of that Original Sin. In the second instance, during the Israelites exodus from Egypt, they became unruly and paganistic. Their leader, Moses, decided on a plan of action to get them under control—he concocted the Ten Commandments. When presented with them, the Israelites scorned Moses and went their ‘merry way’. Moses then presented them with a new set and proclaimed them to be God’s rules—any breech was known as sin from that day forward.

Now lets address the Garden of Eden story. It would seem from the story that all animals were peaceful and loved each other—they lived in perfect harmony. They surely all could talk because snakes could. What I want to know is who put the snake up to tempting Eve? If the snake dreamed up the idea herself, then she would have been the first sinner—I say ‘she’ because females have always been branded as being the source of all evil. Also, presumably, all animals could talk. so why didn’t many others attempt to talk the snake out of deceiving Eve?  Secondly, presumably at the moment Eve bit-in, all the animals would have turned ferocious. How could Adam and Eve have possibly escaped the ravages of all the Lions, tigers, grizzly bears, T Rexes, crocodiles, etc.—they were busy making loin-cloths from fig leaves—no way they could have survived. That entire story sounds very, very ‘fishy’ to me—it in no way reflects the God and the universe I know. I believe, without any doubt, that it represents the imagination of some person(s) attempting to explain a condition from a platform of total ignorance. Never-the-less, that story persists today. Everyone is free to take it or leave it—I prefer the latter.

IMG_0082Now lets talk about Moses and the Ten Commandments. He is to be commended  for constructing such a good set of rules for civility in society. The only two of those rules which seemed to matter as time went on were the 6th and 9th. Of course, they were of paramount importance because a woman (wife) was a man’s property—any unfaithfulness on her part was punishable by stoning to death—pretty serious stuff.

All of this ideology about sin was developed under the pretext of ‘displeasing’ God—that’s what sin was/is. If God were displeased which he was perpetually, then some form of recompense had to be developed to ‘please’ God. So, the idea of sacrifice was developed, deployed and maintained even to this moment—God must be appeased at all cost. And ‘cost’ it did. The High Priest got filthy rich and the peasants got poorer.

Then Jesus came along and guess what—he saw two major problems with the entire set-up. Number one, he saw the miniscule restrictive idea that the Jews had about the nature of their God. He understood the self-serving nature of their philosophy. Number two, he recognized the fallacy of their understanding of their relationship with their God. In other words they had no realistic idea who God was: neither did they have any realistic idea about love—one of the most basic attributes of Gods nature—his perfect love

With that understanding, he set about attempting to instruct them. He tried desperately to get the to see that God was in everything and that everything was/is in God. Likely we shall never know whether or not he was successful. The surviving written word we have has been so distorted. Just look at all the dozens of times it has been rewritten, reinterpreted, and re-invented. So where do we go. I know where I went—I pursued a determined path to the truth.

As I investigated and studied, it became readily apparent that the essence of no deity had ever defined explicitly. It also became readily apparent that without that essential definition , any talk about a deity was just random jargon and totally meaningless. Accordingly, my determination allowed me the freedom of thought and understanding to make that definition—God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That perfection means it cannot possibly be pleased or displeased. God knows all and is all including Perfect Love.

IMG_1065Jesus, seeing the universal evil of selfishness, the only sin and knowing that he and everything in existence were mirror images of God, knew that he must die that God could be Perfect Love. He was the only human to ever see that—what a terrifying thought—he was the messiah—he was the sacrificial lamb who paid the price  for us all—what glorious beauty. Our only just and worthy response is a great big thank you. 

I have full explanation of that and much, much more in my two little books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality, both published by Covenant Books—Press Releases and video trailers attached
