I worship no one or no thing - except Love...and I mean no condescension. But the truth is the truth. You cannot measure your knowledge with mine - as I have studied and read hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of books of spirituality...and diverse religions.
And it all comes down (or up) to LOVE.
Wherever there is not Love, there is no God of Love.
Pouring molten gold down the mouths of women and children have nothing to do with Love...killing babies - as was so "instructed by a "god" - throughout the Bible - has nothing to do with Love.
One nation turning against the other nation in a war of blood - has nothing to do with "god".
Sorry - no God of Love would want any of his children to fight or kill the other.
So, since such wars are littered throughout the Bible - it was not the God of Love that guided those wars.
It was the Librarian.
Not an evel sort, per se, ...just not a very nice person (entity) who enjoys tortuing us.
He fell from Heaven, created Earth and then set himself up as the God of this world, one who oversees the rest of us poor folk - who keep falling from Heaven into bodies that burn until we realize that there's no better experience than the love of Heaven, which is where we all came from in the first place.
So, in the meantime, we keep performing on this Earth - until we "get it right."
In short, Shakespeare was correct:
"All the world is a stage, and we are but actors."
Unfortunately, it's for the Librarian's entertainment - and not any "development" of our souls.
Our souls are already perfect.
We just forgot that.
And once we remember it, we can to stay (return to) in Heaven.
