There are many teachers. I don’t want to be narrowed minded and put God in a box that I created according to my understanding. That is arrogance in its truest form. None know the mind of God really. We only know what our finite intelligence allows.
I believe that we can know God through the experience of transformation. Other beliefs also bring about transformation. Words have power, period.
I am spiritual.
Universal Knowledge is infinite. So, the best I can do is seek understanding for myself.
My understanding that I have gotten from more than one spiritual teacher is Love is God and God is Love.
God is all good. If it isn’t good it isn’t God. That is enough understanding for me.
I have studied the Bible and found the energy, wisdom and words transforming, but there are other spiritual teachings that also lead us to transformation. This demands my respect for the belief of others.
For me it really is very simple.
I don’t believe God expects me to take all the words of the bible literally. I have studied the bible and have my own perspective. You may have a unique perspective and that is okay and welcomed. God is good like that.
To me, the most important message that I as a disciple of Jesus received is summed up by these words:
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples”, Jesus said.
My religion is Love plain and simple. I cannot say that I love God but do not Love you.
I love you.
