    Does the God of the bible call us to serve our religion, belief system, or to serve mankind?

    All the God of the Bible wants is for you to obey authority outside of yourself. Never obey your personal or inner authority. Your personal or inner authority is Satan. The Bible exists to promote government by monarchy. The Bible is written with a purpose.

    The God represented in the bible wishes that we both serve Him and humanity.

    Burn the bible in the wilderness, eat h the flames ask how did that book manifest realty. After a while if you hang out in nature a d get out of the nut house you might actually get an answer back" the bible did not manifest me you idiot no book Maninfested me not science not math nothing manifested me. I have been here the whole timei am alive you have been a dead zombie" and if That happens then you will get a proper answer to your question. Although being clueless has its advantages.

    god is intrinsic to self and omnipresent.


    Jeremiah 23:24
    Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven andearth?” declares the Lord.

    Psalm 46:10
    He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

    1 Corinthians 3:16
    Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

    Is that an observation or an opinion of your own?

    Here is what I think. Quit preaching and write poetry instead. What do you think?

    if the bible, like the quran is being used to oppress, its makes great fuel for a cooking or warming fire.


    i have to work within the system of the believer, i can only untangle the mess once I've found the ending thread that unravels.


    behold i come like a thief, blessed is he who stays awake lest their house be left desolate.


    i'm an advocate of meditation; especially in nature.

    Bingo I just wrote that to fool!!!! He asked how do I explain I said stop it, express, we desperately all must start generating art I am totally about nature alive art. Amen savage, the most fantastic writer ever never wrote a word. He lived it he inspired breathed into others and they wrote. He wrote it in blood and body. He isn't dead its us that today are dead. I spend all my time in nature these are just postcards from the wilderness. John Muir is my man!!! Rock star poet. Should be a Saint he ain't. Dark times.

    it's interesting what the mind will form an attachment to. like biting your own teeth, there is nothing to it.

    Yes. Your name!!!!! Go read about the old hmm how great thou art.. A savage wind breathed that into the poet!!!! It's really a constant thread in Muirs vision. He speaks in bluegrass folk mountain music. The man understood himself to be the reincsrnation of John the Baptist!!! He was a genius nut!!!! In a good way, he was bringing mountianity to the country. We have no john Muir today. But that occurs when needed. Today we have Gifford pinchot the idiot or Al gore same thing!!!!!! Lol. Muir did not like pinchot at all. Hard line right there.

    Wierd synchronicity too you sent the we need art exactly as I was commenting to fool saying exactly the same thing. Synchronicity. It's not a road map it's a compass in a world all trying to navigate by road map!!!

    The message of the bible is to know thyself.
    The consequences of not understanding this is to fail to understand anything that the bible says.
