General Boykin, an American general told a church group in June, "I
knew my God was bigger than their God" ... referring to
the god of the Muslims.
sounds a lot like Ann Coulter, a fellow religious conservative who said
on September 13, 2001, "We should invade
their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to
movement is stronger today than it was a week ago," said Ibrahim
al-Janabi, a senior al-Sadr aide. "But
most important of all is that God is on our side," he
said Friday after prayers in Sadr City, the movement's Baghdad
more confusion today about God than almost any time in history.
The conservative Christians have actually put "Jesus in
jeopardy" of being the most misunderstood of all the religious
figures in history. Buddha, Krishna ... neither of these mystics
have had their teachings so distorted and manipulated as the teachings
of Jesus. Spiritual seekers have studied the Torah for centuries
... and still have realized that there is even more to know ... the same
is true of students of the teachings of the Buddha and Krishna ... the
zealous fundamentalist Christians believe their "extremely
limited" understanding of the teachings of Jesus give them the
right to coerce and force others to follow their "confused"
rules of religion. It was this same confused religious zeal that
"made" Jesus into God rather than the Great Example. If
Jesus is God ... then we don't have to follow His "Example" of
Love and Forgiveness ... after all, how can "sinners" be
expected to have the faith of God ... but that is exactly what Jesus
called us to do ... to have the "faith
of God" not a "faith in God." The world as
we know it today is mirroring back to Its inhabitants our "faith in
God" ... and it is a sad state of affairs we have ourselves in ...
and I don't mean the war in Iraq ... I am referring to the fact that now
more than ever people are using the name of Jesus, the word
Christian and the word God ... in the most abusive and ungodly manner
... Ann Coulter's statement is an
"abomination" of such magnitude that there is no greater
example of "abomination" to be found in the Holy Bible
... her understanding of Jesus and Christianity is gross and ignorant
... General Boykin, as ridiculous as his statement is ... is but a
foolish braggart in comparison.
And what about the statement
above from the Muslim? ... it is but a "mirror" of what people
like General Boykin and Ann Coulter are giving to the Universe ... the
Universe will always "mirror" back to us what we give It ...
the General and Ms. Coulter have both forgotten the basic teaching of
Jesus ... "sowing and reaping" ... "cause and
effect" ... what we sow ... we reap ... their ignorance of the
Universal Change-less Law of Sowing and Reaping is mirroring back to
them ... "God is on our Side" ... in each of these examples
that is utter nonsense!
God Is on our Side ... when we
align ourselves with the Nature of God ... with the Universal Principle
of Love ... when we sow Peace, Joy, Understanding and Hope ... then ...
and only then will we "reap" Peace, Joy, Understanding and
Hope. It is a pathetic world in which we use the name of God or
Jesus or Christianity ... to utter the un-godly ... to believe that we
can sow hatred, murder and invasion ... and not reap the same in return
is to deny the very Principle that Jesus' entire Life on this planet
stood for! We cannot "escape the Law of Cause and Effect
(sowing and reaping) anymore than we can win a fight with gravity ... or
a battle with the rotation of the Earth! This level of ignorance
continues to keep Peace at a distance ... and to many ... a hopeless
God Is on the Side
of those who want the same for their enemy as they want for themselves
.... the Master Mind Jesus said "pray for your enemies" ...
knowing that if we did not our wars would never end! God is on the
Side of those who respect the God of those who may find Him on a
different path than we ourselves are on ... thank God ... Jesus was not
a modern-day conservative Christian ... and in truth Jesus was not
Christian at all ... He was Jewish ... and Buddha was not a Buddhist ...
Krishna was not a Hindu and Mohammed was not a Mohammedan ... they were
all messengers ... mystics who chose to deliver the message of a God so
Infinitely Loving ... so Infinitely Present ... so Infinitely Powerful
... that if we turn to Him ... rather than the way of war ... rather
than the way of history ... we will finally experience the Peace that we
seek ... Christian, Buddhist, Jew, Mohammedan, Hindu, Muslim ...
Religious Science ... whatever religion we identify with ... it makes no
difference ... when Love Is in our Hearts ... God Is on Our Side!
So It Is!
