I don’t believe God is… Part 3


There is a new phrase now called the “spiritual ego.” This is when we enlist the deity to be part of our group. That God has put his stamp of approval on our cause because we are now following his commands in a “righteous cause” a holly war against some invaders trying to destroy our group/way of life/nation/attacking our core beliefs. We become God’s defenders in a new crusade to protect our fragile group identity.

Some groups go as far as telling us the “Prince of Peace” is going to return one day and destroy everyone they disagree with in a genocidal conflagration larger than anything witnessed so far in the history of the world.

God does not have an ego. God needs protection from no one, any time any where. God does not even need me to say these things. But I do need to say them for my benefit and maybe some others who are struggling with old beliefs picked up by former associations.

arbitrary, does not act on whim because She has no ego to be bruised,: Oh the ego makes plenty of sense to itself and will make the reasons for its arbitrariness seem totally reasonable, in fact it has made entire—our world system— a system that within itself seems valid. However one caveat of most ego systems is no one is allowed to examine its beliefs, ever. If someone in the group decides to examine and sees the erroneous nature of the beliefs, they are cast out, called heretics and if society allows will kill the other. Both politics and religion are perfect examples of how this happens.

Jesus was on the money when he said from the cross, “….they [speaking of man/woman/human race] don’t know what they are doing.” The human race lost the ability to discern the “Truth” when we began to believe in good and evil. The human race became mentally and spiritually blind, hence we do not know what we are doing and incapable of knowing anything real or true. We are mentally compromised with no need to or ability to know anything. (see 1Cor. 2:14)

Requires payment for any reason: “Father forgive them because they know not what they do.” “….neither do I condemn you go and sin no more.” God does not keep track of our misdeeds.

“Love….does not count the bad” 1 Corinthians 13:5 Or, account, calculate, impute. That is, keep account of it; or, count it against a person (be resentful); or, impute it to others. (DLNT)

“Be Loving One Another, Because The Love Is from God. The one not loving did not know God, because God is love.1 Jn 4:7, 8 (DLNT)

If God is NOT keeping a record of our wrong doing, our mistakes, what penalty needs to be paid? Why would Jesus need to pay with his blood? No one else needs to pay for my mistakes, we all have our own to deal with.

sexist, male, female or homophobic: Gen. 1:27 So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female. [Galatians 3:28.] The hot topic today, Just as important a the fight for feminine and racial equality. Is Gender a product only of the physical outward appearance or does it go any deeper than this body of flesh? Is our physical body the only thing that matters?

“Don’t you believe the Bible?” To be continued in Part 4

By David Weisbach

My passion is spiritual growth, reading about those topics, insights and application of principles. My influences are varied: books and experiences gathered along my journey over the last six decades. I've journeyed through Christian fundamentalism, hedonism, Zen Buddhism, New age thought, Science of Mind, Swedenborg, and now settled down to a world that works for everyone. All of us need everyone all the time. I also I love photography see my work on flicker and Fine Art America Flicker: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dhwlighting/ Fine Art America: https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/david-weisbach?tab=artwork
