all the future and past right? So why the sadistic nature of the human condition and the route to heaven?
Why would an all powerful and knowing god make sin to begin with if he is the decider of what everything is? If he created everything then he also
If there is a true battle with Satan could Satan win? Does Satan have a shot at being in charge?
If he wants peace and love why send his unrepentant loved ones to hell rather than snap his magic finger and recreate his loved creations into sinless
beings or does he not love all? Why would he want to give something he loves pain or does he not have control of us and the Universe any longer?
Good questions there. If we took away the belief of God as an all powerful being who knows past and future, etc, then we would leave room for a
clearer perspective not tainted with archaic symbology, myth and Judgment.
Imagine what we call God as just the Aware, Creative Energy of our Universe. Something that diversified itself in order to explore it's abilities...
much like we do when growing up.
Why would it care what an infinitely small part of itself was doing? Do we care what one skin cell on our arm is doing while we grow and learn about
It would not know it's own future, because it hadn't reached it yet. It would only experience things as they occur, again, just like we do.
For God to already know what is in the future... all of the future, would be an absolute waste of Awareness and Experience. And surely if there is an
all powerful being it is not about to waste it's existence?
Didn't Jesus say it is Us who are the sons of the living father? That when we come to know ourselves then we become known, and we will then know that
the kingdom of heaven is within us and without us? What does this tell us?
It tells me that each of us are small portions of God, the awareness of our universe that we are created from. And, it tells me that we have
everything we need inside us already, and we can also recognise it in the world around us.
Many people can see God in the world around us, the trees, animals, the earth itself, etc. So why not look inside to find it there also? Why not come
to know ourselves?
I do not think Jesus died to save anything or anyone. In fact, I am sure that was an anecdote provided by Saul who became Paul, after the alleged
death of Jesus the Man, as a way to gain further power and Kudos when he gained control of the fledgling "church".
If Jesus said we are the sons of the living father, then that tells us he was not the only begotten son of God.
Personally I cannot simply believe in the disinformation of their being some entity called Satan. For me this is more about controlling what you
think, and how you act, than it being a reality. Although in the lower realms there are many beings that choose to shun the Light, yet none would be
what is called Satan.. the equal power to God.
We love the concept of Duality don't we? Won't we get a shock when we finally realise Duality is only a belief and of itself does not exist, just
like Satan, or an all powerful being named God.
If I'm wrong then I am happy to go to hell if such a place could ever exist in any reality, as some of my old friends would be there by now and it
would be good to catch up with them again.
Two edits, well it is late here in Oz.
