And yet it is Love that is the root of all evil (not money, like many would believe).
Every sin is fed by love; the love of food, the love of wealth, of violence, of sex, of materialistic possession. People kill, sell drugs, collapse
economies, and steal from the poor. They do all of this for money, sure, but this money is only a means to feed their sick belief that if they can
obtain enough money and power and possession they will become historic... immortal... and as such they will be loved and worshipped.
However; as I said, everything has two sides. Love is also everything you stated.
As for the Bible statement. The bible is full of talking snakes, demons, and sorcery, just like Harry Potter is full of talking snakes, demons, and
sorcery. The only difference is; the bible takes itself seriously.
Is the Bible suppose to be the word of God? Sure. If people didn't believe that, it'd be on a shelf next to Grimms Faery Tales, and all the other
morality books from history. But lets look at God for a moment. "He" is just as much the Devil as he is the Divine. As I've said before; its all
about perspective. To Moses and the Hebrew Families from Exodus, God is all good, a messenger, a saviour by giving Moses magical abilities. Now look
at it from the Egyptian perspective; "This "God" has just murdered an entire generation."
Personally; I don't believe God/Devil to be entities as much as conscious energy that is present through kharma and human consciousness. This is just
my personal belief, and through this belief I have been able to shape my own existence to one of pure bliss, because through my belief I have come to
understand that God is everything and everyone, as the Devil is everything and everyone. We all have the power to create our own reality, and are
actually creating our pasts as quickly as we are creating our future. Its a bit much to grasp I'm sure. You'd have to understand quantum physics,
but the basic idea is this: When God created the Universe he created it out of himself. To better understand this; imagine a man exploding into a
cloud of dust and that each speck of that dust is a galaxy. God didn't make man from his image, he made everything
from his image, and since
we are all a part of God, we all carry an inherent God-like power.
Here's a quote from Frank Tippler:
According to the laws of physics, matter, energy, movement and force make up everything in the world, but they all go back to one thing -- what
physics calls the cosmological singularity.
Tippler says that cosmological singularity is God.
