Holy Scripture of nearly every one of the world's
exclusivist organized religions contains passages that
describe a God of anger, of judgment, and of
Do you remember
what happened to the Israelites who worshipped the
golden calf? Were not 3,000 of them slaughtered by the
Levites at God's command? Did God not instruct you
in Exodus 32:27 to "take every man his sword by his
side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout
the camp, and slay every man his brother and every man
his companion, and every man his neighbor?" And what
about the 24,000 Israelites who worshipped Baal? Did
God not say unto Moses, as recorded in Numbers 25:4-9:
"Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up
before the Lord..."
To expand on our
lesson from Conversations with God-Book 1 ,
let us turn to a newer CwG dialogue text, The New
Revelations. Here is a direct quote from that
relates that 12,000 men, women and children of Ai were
killed in an ambush that God Himself inspired and
supervised, ( Joshua 8:1-30 ), and that the
armies of the Amorites were destroyed when "...the
Lord...slew them with a great slaughter." ( Joshua
critiques tell us that a reading of the books of
Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges,
Samuel, Numbers, Amos, Kings, Chronicles, Esther,
and Job, to name a few, will produce a toll
of no less than one million people in Old
Testament history alone who were smote by God's hand,
including all of those who died during a 7-year famine
in Samaria sent by the Lord ( II Kings 8:1 ),
or the 185,000 Assyrians slain overnight by one angel
( I Kings 19:35 )--or by people working at
God's behest--such as the 100,000 Syrian footmen,
killed on a single day by the children of Israel (
I Kings 20:28,29,30 ), or the prophets of Baal,
numbering 450, murdered by Elijah ( I Kings
18:40,46) , or the half million men of
Israel slaughtered by the army of King Abijah of
Judah, whom, we are told, 'God smote.' ( II
Chronicles 13:16,17,18 )."
You may also
find it interesting to read the Book of Mormon
. It gives humans some very interesting pictures
of God. For instance, it says:
"Howl ye, for
the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a
destruction from the Almighty...Behold, the day of the
Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger,
to lay the land desolate; and he shall destroy the
sinners thereof out of it...and I will punish the
world for evil, and the wicked for their
iniquity...every one that is proud shall be thrust
through; yea, and every one that is joined to the
wicked shall fall by the sword..."
Wow. That sure
tells us how vicious you get when you are offended.
more. Not satisfied with punishing evil men, the Lord
God Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, goes after
innocent offspring and spouses as well.
children shall also be dashed to pieces before their
eyes; their houses shall be spoiled and their wives
The Book of
Mormon says this?
Look in 2 Nephi
Indeed. What you
must now admit and acknowledge is that you have told
yourselves in many of your holy scriptures that God,
himself, kills people who offend him, and that God
wants you to go out and kill for him, too.
Perhaps now it
is time--while we still have time--for all of
us to ask ourselves some very important questions.
It is possible
that the Word of God as put down by humans in their
holy books has some errors in it? Is it
possible that there is something we don't know about
God and about Life, the knowing of which could
That's the end
of the excerpt from The New Revelations. The New
Revelations makes the point that humanity's holy
scriptures also give humans permission to act
in the same way that humans believe God acts.
"You must purge
the evil from among you," says the Bible .
"Fight them until there is no more conflict and all
faith goes to God," the Qur'an instructs. "To
protect men of virtue, and destroy men who do evil, to
set the standard of sacred duty, I appear in age after
age," the Bhagavad-Gita informs us.
As far as Holy
Scriptures are concerned, this is the right and proper
work of God's people.
Now, in the
space of all THIS....can you find it possible to
believe that "God's love is unconditional"?
That is the
current lesson from CwG, Book 1 . Can you
possibly believe this?
I would not
blame you if you found it difficult. I would not be
very surprised. Most of the world cannot believe the
promises that God's love IS unconditional. And
Communion with God goes further. It says that the
Eighth Illusion of Humans is that "Conditionality
Exists." This is one of ten very big, very impactful
illusions which we created during the earliest part of
our experience on Earth, and hundreds of smaller ones
that we create every day. Because we believe them, we
have created a Cultural Story that has allowed us to
enter into these Illusions and make them real.
To quote God
directly from Communion with God:
They are not
really real , of course. Yet you have created an
Alice in Wonderland world in which they seem very
real, indeed. So real that, like the Mad Hatter, you
will deny that what is False is false, and that what
is Real is real.
You have, in
fact, been doing this for a very long time.
A Cultural Story
is a story which has been handed down from generation
to generation, across centuries and millennia. It is
the Story that you tell yourself about yourself.
Cultural Story is based on Illusions, it produces
Myth, and not an understanding of reality.
** The outcome
of life is in doubt. (Failure Exists)
** You are
separate from God. (Disunity Exists)
** There is not
enough. (Insufficiency Exists)
** There is
something you have to do. (Requirement Exists)
** If you do not
do it, you will be punished. (Judgment Exists)
punishment is everlasting damnation. (Condemnation
** Love is,
therefore, conditional. (Conditionality Exists)
** Knowing and
meeting the conditions renders you superior.
** You do not
know that these are illusions. (Ignorance Exists.)
Story has been so ingrained in you that you now live
it fully and completely. This, you tell each other,
"is just The Way It Is."
That's the end
of the excerpt. (And, incidentally, once again....if
you have not read Communion with God, please
do so at once. The entire CwG series of
books must be read in total if you are serious
about studying--much less applying in your life--the
Conversations with God material.)
I am telling you
here that this is NOT "just the way it is." Again, let
us return to the actual text from Communion with
no Conditionality in the Universe. That Which Is
is That Which Is, and there are no Conditions
under which It is Not.
It is not
possible for "What Is" not to be. There are no
conditions under which that would be true. This is why
Life is Eternal. Because Life is That Which Is, and
That Which Is can never not be.
Life always was,
is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
So, too, with
God. For God IS what Life is.
So, too, with
Love. For Love IS what God is.

Love cannot not

that? Do you understand that? The two are mutually

the same place.

Life Itself. Yet the form in which you express Life at
the present moment - the civilization which you have
created, and are about to uncreate - is not
unchangeable. It is the wonder of Who You Are that you
can change Form whenever you wish. Indeed, you do this
all the time.
If, however, you
are enjoying the Form in which you now experience
yourself, why change it?
That is the
question facing the whole human race.

The lack of true
Conditionality in the Universe notwithstanding, you
have believed firmly that Conditionality Exists.
Surely it exists in God's kingdom. Every one of your
religions taught you that. So it must exist in the
Universe at large. It was, you decided, a fact of
Life. So, you have spent lifetimes trying to figure
out what the conditions are that could allow you to
create the life - and the Afterlife - that you desire
if you did not meet The Requirement. If you met The
Requirement, there was no problem. But what if you did

No, no...you have to meet The Requirement!
You do not
understand yourselves to be Creative Beings. Nor do
you understand Me to be so. You imagine that I can
somehow fail to have something that I desire (such as,
that all My Children return home to Me) - which means
that I must not be a truly Creative Being at all, but
a Dependent one. If I was truly creative, I would be
able to create anything that I choose. But I seem to
be dependent upon conditions being met in order to
have what I want.
