I have to say Good Wolf, your on your journey home young man. I`m going on 53 this month, and it`s been a long journey for me (in understanding what
we are really here for). I was not raised with the church, but have read the bible myself. I believe in a creator, and that all of us are just a part
of that force, being or what ever you may want to call it. That force is both male and female in nature, or ying and yang, good and bad. We are a
balance of all aspects. That is what the soul is in nature. That is why we have all aspects of this in our world around us each and every day. We were
given at the time of our creation, free will, to grow spiritually as fast and in any way we choose. I have had many argue with me, that God gave us
free will, but then say that God restircts us in that free will, which is totally illogical no matter how you look at it. It would then become limited
will, not free will. So that in itself tells me that the teachings they want me to believe are wrong.
I was asked why I thought that. My responce was, how could a good and loving creator (or God) tell us one thing (free will), then tell us another
(limited will). Their responce was, well, God can do that, he can do anything he wants. I said oh, God can lie to us then? If God is perfect, God can
not lie. Well, they didn`t have a comeback to that. I have found many things the bible speaks of that are contradictory in nature. Many tell me that
it is the living word of God, and was written by God. I ask, how can God do that if God is spirit in nature? They say, God gave the word through man
to write down. Ok then, so man wrote it down. Man can make mistakes, man can take things and misinterpret them by not fully understanding them
(understanding that man in those days did not have the education we have today). Man changes things to better fit his own understanding of them.
I have read that there are many parts of the bible that are left out, or missing. If so, why? Are they missing for a reason? Were they left out for a
reason? If so, why? Plain and simple reasoning and gut feeling tells me why. It is a control factor, a church control factor in simpler terms. Why
would the church want to control us? Well, let`s look at it in this way. If we were to fully think for ourselves, and do some very deep soul searching
on our own (without the churches involvement), we would soon understand the true purpose of our being (who we are, and why we are here). That means
that we would no longer need the church to guide us. Now, what would happen if that were to come to pass? The church would lose both power and money.
They would lose the hold they have had on humanity sinse the church was formed. We would no longer need to turn to them for guidance. As you have done
We are all one, yet seperate. I believe God, after our creation, allowed us to explore all that is, including love, hate, good, evil, life and death,
all aspects of physical being, without the creators interference (the free will part of it). Now, when I talk of being one, I mean of one mind with
god, all of us together in spirit. Now, when I talk of seperate, I mean, we are using the free will to learn all the aspects I stated above, as
individuals, or seperate from one another. It would be amazing, if you were to take all of the things we have experienced as human beings, from the
first time we stepped on this world, until this very day, just the thought of all these things would blow your mind. The thing we are running into, is
the fact that we have become so immursed in this physical world, and thinking of ourselves as seperate beings, we have forgotten our true roots. We
are all of one mind and being with God. We so much want to think of ourselves as individuals, that we are forgetting that we are not.
God does not judge us for this, we do. We judge ourselves, it is all part of the learning experience. God loves and trusts us enough(sinse we are a
part of God) to do the right thing in the end. And what is the right thing in the end? That we grow spirituallty, back to the one, at our own pace. We
are children who were given the time to explore far from home(god), and that as we explore, the journey takes us from our start and leads us back home
There is nothing to fear in all of this Good Wolf. We create our own fears, demons and hell while we are here. So don`t be afraid to explore on your
own. Don`t be afraid to go deep inside to find God, he is there. That is why we have the saying, seek and you will find, knock on that door deep
inside of you, God will answer.
