There IS an infinite spirit entity that both permeates and oversees our physical space-and-time reality. I call him God, the Father, the Creator.
To me and many others, denying such an entity is mere immature, childish foolishness. To think and/or believe that humankind is the be-all and end-all to creation is mere hubris, conceit and folly. All one really has to do is just examine the Creation carefully to see its majesty, see its amazing detail, see its incredible wisdom, both in a micro sense as well as a macro sense.
Look at your own hand, the veins in a leaf, the glory of the sun, the workings of a single cell and a myriad more to see of what I speak. Your very own body is composed trillions of cells and zillions of atoms, atoms whose electrons whizz about their respective nuclei at 3/4 the speed of light, and yet you are a living, breathing, thinking soul-filled organism. Amazing. You are a creature of light. You must not forget that.
Though I do not understand much of His existence, I comprehend that there is far more to our existence than what our feeble senses reveal. There are dozens of phenomena we have uncovered that appear to exist outside of our realm, things we just do not have the mental capacity to understand, and things that occur that beg the suspension of our current understanding of our own existence and reality.
Now, if one believes that such an entity exists, it logically leads to a profound humility. It leads to a place where we accept our place in the larger scheme of things as mere creatures, creatures who exist in a very limited sub-section of overall reality, creatures whose existence begs that we must strive to be better and grow, creatures who must understand that we are all in this together, and creatures who must realize that our own creating is endemic to our race of beings and that destruction is counter to those aims.
If one believes that such a entity exists and has created us, it would seem logical that such a Being would wish to communicate His existence to us and authenticate His message so that there could be no confusion as to its origin. Such a communication exists. It is called the Holy Bible. But that discussion is for another day.
Now, as for today, this is the Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. Whether you are Jewish or not makes no difference, as you and I have done many wrong things in recent times. For me, it is wise to take some time out and recount my trespasses, and recant my evil behaviors, my anger toward my fellow man, my ignoring the plight of the less fortunate, my own personal greed and self-interest, and so forth, and strive to do better in the days ahead. None of us humans are anywhere near perfect, so we all have a lot of work ahead of us on this day and into the future. We are haughty, dirty little pissants chock full of nasty habits, yet have the potential to be so much more.
We are coming to a critical point in our corporate life as a country. The United States of America was founded by God-fearing men, men and women who left England ostensibly to enjoy religious freedom and escape the whim and will of an unfair crown. There can be no denying how our country has been blessed; in less than 200 years, America has become the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
Though most people nowadays are ignorant of what World War II was about, America was instrumental in freeing the world of Naziism and tyranny. And America became the beacon of freedom and truth for so many millions of people who came here looking for a better life. And most found it. And they still come to America because they know, despite all its ills, it is still the best place to live and work and grow and raise a family.
That is not to say today’s corporate America is perfect. FAR from it. Currently we are the world’s purveyor of pornography. We are responsible for many atrocities the world over. The unparalled and unethical greed of some individuals and companies is staggering. Racial prejudice has become a poison. We kill innocent babies by the hundreds daily. We change marriage partners like a fashion statement. We applaud sexual immorailty and confuson, contrary to God’s laws, as the latest trendy interest. Good has become evil and evil has become good.
And so much more. We can change some of that in the years ahead. We can. Atone for our sins, America. But alas, your time runs short.
We have become more divided than ever before, divided upon racial lines, religious beliefs, partisan politics, age barriers, socioeconomic class, gender issues, even scientific methods, and more. As is well known, a house divided cannot stand.
You may not agree with me, but as I see it, there are evil powers at work, doing all they can to destroy the America I know and love. These powers-that-be have manipulated the mainstream media into lying to you, the American public, vehemently and unabashedly biasing their presentation of what they call truth. There is widespread censorship and an incredible lack of toleration of free speech. These powerbrokers have wantonly supported agencies of unrest and destruction. These unGodly oligarchs wish to divide us every which way they can — they fear a united people, a great sleeping giant they cannot defeat.
Be careful, America. As I continually tell you: You are being played. Totally being played and made to look like fools and tools. You may think you want one thing, but beware you get what you wish for.
I believe my God is a just God. His forbearance is great but even His patience has its limits. If America is not careful, and continues down its destructive path, woe onto you, people of America.
Lastly, I do not fear. I have been told many dozens of times not to fear. So I do not fear. In the very ultimate end, the Good Guys win. See you at the victory party!
