GOOGLE is: in DEED - GOD -
tHE hOLY bIBLE is a divisive tool.
I studied it carefully & taught from it for ten years. I have read it much longer— most of my life. I still quote from it, because it’s impossible to put that many words together and not get lucky occasionally... BUT, overall, I found it impossible to understand without a lot of contextual assistance. On the occasions I turned to it for personal comfort, solace or guidance— it failed me consistently, miserably.
Other times, Man has interpreted it poorly— perversely. Result: The Inquisition, The Salem Witch Trials, even "Christian Machine Gunners" as found in our modern, current U.S. Military.
Yesterday I had a personal problem that I needed answers to. I GOOGLED the topic. Lowe & behold! The heavens opened, the Angels sang and (expletive) if the answers didn’t cascade neatly before me.
Reading the printed excerpts in a warm bath, I found comfort intermingled with direct answers— readily available, presented in current context, in an undisputed, understandable language, without judgement. It occurred to me: All those times when I turned to the Bible & it failed me only proves that GOOGLE is indeed GOD !!!
Life is about choices. Where is god? In those choices.
Most people sense that the game is up for religion, but out of fear, they shut down their minds & will themselves to believe "god is still out there somewhere". Life without religion is too scary to contemplate. So, they retreat to a safety zone of belief & repeat nervously the formulas they have learned about faith.
God is War
I am convinced
after 48 years on this earth, and
after really getting to know
the most spiritual person
I have ever met,
that “God” as we know him
and have been taught to know him
does not exist.
I believe in a creator.
That's where convention & I part.
Like a woman
who is born with all the eggs
she will ever need for reproduction,
I believe the creator
has endowed us with
all the tools we need
to accomplish our mission
in this lifetime;
whatever that may be.
I believe that mission
is slightly different
for each and every one of us.
I do not believe
in interference -of any sort- by a god,
nor do I believe in grace pre se.
I believe we are all
individual parts of the whole.
When one is hurt, the whole hurts.
Love is not “the answer”,
I do not believe in the
riteness or wrongness
of any religion.
If religion is organized,
it is by default,
The children of Abraham
not just the Muslims,
of their actions,
is an abhorition
to the concept of
holiness, or an
all powerful deity.
By their actions,
god is war.
We do not eat
by gods grace;
nor, will I thank
the same god
who lets people suffer and starve
for my meals.
We do not succeed
by Gods grace
but I am grateful for
and aim to be
a good steward of
We do not fail
because God has a lesson.
I do love this Comic from The NewYorker.
I have been trying to "ask a better question," like,
"How is this moment a preparation for the next?"
That being said, there is no need to "Blame the Lord."
We are ultimately accountable
for our actions.
We are successful
according to the stewardship
of the tools we have been given.
I have hard proof of these things.
The lesson was painfully learned.
These answers have brought me
made me feel foolish
for participating in
as long as I did.
When one sneezes:
god bless you
I don't believe
you have an evil spirit
trying to get out!
I wish you wellness:
I am now free to love & live
Thanks to my many teachers,
esp, the last one.
The poor are thought to be insane.
The wealthy are thought to be Eccentric.
The Religious are a whole 'nother story.
Will they get the lesson,
will they just get the pain?
the yellow cross of shame
...talk about being a hammer and seeing every problem as a nail...
Châtelaine, a woman who owns or controls a large house.
Most recent DVDs viewed: The Inquisition, Passion of Joan of Arc, Nietzsche & the Nazi's.
Conclusion: Religion is wicked & divisive. There cannot be a god associated with any church that has a building or hierarchy!
I was involved with a group who believed in reincarnation. Some of their beliefs & judgments have me convinced that the leader is himself a reincarnated Inquisitor with a Nietzschien bent.
An Inquisitor because he professed sexuality, even between spouses in marriage, to be a "mis-appropriation of the light". the Inquisitors would agree. They burned you for "knowing" your spouse. The Inquisitors further insisted no meat be eaten, another violation for which you could be condemned to burn. Hypocrites & heretics of the highest order. LOL !
When people gather in groups that are too large, power struggles ensue.
Religion..., Politics... Under what incredible darkness we live today. I'm going to ride an exerciser.
we are socialists. we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility & performance, & we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.
the money pigs of capitalist democracy...
permission to destroy life unworthy of life...
Nazi national socialism
...professors of racial hygiene...
protection of hereditary health...
if the health of the citizenry is the states responsibility, the state has a responsibility to allocate its resources wisely.
if the state allocates its funds for the care of the wicked or weak, then effectively the strong are sacrificed. but it is the strong who are the states best assets. . . . if the weak parish
as nature intends, then the strong are enhanced and the health of the state are improved.
Ayn Rand was heavily influenced by Nietzsche... so, apparently is "talks with angels"
RE: The Holy Bible
I have been working overtime on MYSELF these past few months. Yes, of course, enjoying the love of a very special lady. But mostly enjoying her loving perspective.
She has me on a "forgiveness diet". Google it.
Back when I studied the bible, I NEVER rec'd the comfort or answers GOOGLE has provided.
Even with concordances, key word cross references, commentaries, computer programs & all the expensive accoutremon employed by a good southern baptist, NEVER has the bible been more than a distraction!!!!!
You want life application?
The NEW International Version?
How about living w/o bullshit?
No need to go back in time
to try and understand references...
I have no need of The Bible.
I have found the no-nonsense, universal answer:
No bullshit !!!
Google it !!!
The bible ? Read it. Studied intensely & taught it for more than ten years. I have no use for it or 99% of its content.
Google it! Google is God.
Google is The Universe.
Google is High Vibration.
Google is God.
