For nearly 6,000 years of recorded history, man has experienced war. Lasting peace and prosperity have seemed to elude him. Could their be a connection between man's religion and the mounting woes of the human race? Would more religion be the answer? Or is religion the cause? The use of God in war, or a holy war, is only a military convenience by those in power. For one to think that God is so weak He cannot do His will without our intervention, borders on ludicrous blasphemy.
With thousands of religious figures claiming their brand of Religion should be followed, the disillusioned, and confused millions ask, which message is correct? Rank religious confusion is everywhere! Could this confusion be part of God’s plan? Many blame today's organized religion for this worlds problems. Many say that religion has failed to answer the vital questions regarding the purpose for human life, who we are? Why we are?...and why are we here on earth?
Although our modern world has achieved awesome advancement in technology, science and knowledge, humanity is experiencing a rapid moral decline. The children of light, are ensnared into religions worldwide, with many to be enslaved and corrupted by religion. When you feel close to God, and I know that many of you do; it is not your religion that brings you nearer to the Father. No it is only the love you have in your heart, that brings you closer. God is much too large to tolerate just one religion, he tolerates them all.
Ever since the dawn of mankind, around 40,000 years ago, when God revealed the possibility of his existence to mankind by giving humans a powerful imagination, people have wondered about their origins. Where did we come from? Who created us? Over the centuries, to answer these very basic questions, our storytellers have invented many myths, stories and dogmas. Religions are simply the outgrowth of these ancient myths and dogmas handed down from generation to generation and formalized into faiths, rituals and traditions.
Human Imagination, mankind's "special sense", is the power that separates mankind from all the other animals on Earth - it is made possible by a powerful brain, capable of comprehending the wonders of nature and the world we live in. Mankind now had the power to begin to comprehend the beauty that surrounded it. Something must have created all this magnificent beauty. I can "see" for myself, through my imagination, the beauty of its creations - it is everywhere I look. In order to understand the true nature of God, the Creator of the universe, we must separate the myths of mankind from the physical evidence of God's existence.
It was the "Secular God", (God without the religious myths), that walked with Abraham. The creator of the universe and father of life is an infinitely powerful creative force who knows no bounds and exists everywhere. Nothing is impossible for this creative power, his power extends - even beyond the universe.
When we take away religion, with all its myths and stories, etc. from the realm of God what is left? Evidence of a "Secular God's" existence is all around us - the primary evidence of God's existence is the beauty of its creations that we can see and experience. Take away the fear and there is no need for religion. Just you and God is all that is needed. Let the Great Spirit build His temple in you heart, it is there, where you will find true peace and love.
God still works miracles with or without religion. The divine Creator of all things, is free to move in and around all religions to deal with your soul. So keep your religion if you must. Just remember we are all His children and that no soul is of greater or lesser importance in His eyes.
"It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all."
