What is God

For Christians 'Our Father in Heaven' and God are closely linked almost to the point of being the same. A skeptic will probably point out that 'Our Father' is simply a projection of human fraility, a form of childishness that looks for a protector in an imagined heaven some place 'up there'

In fact God is most probably a force, an energy source of imensity beyond our present comprehension. It would be the source of all matter, and by definition, of all life. God in this sense is not an extraterrestrial (ET) incarnate because, as far as we know, an ET is a created form of life. God on the other hand, the way I'm defining it, is beyond that level. It is the Source, or as the Ra say, it is the One, the 'I Am' of monotheistic Scripture

Some think that Yeshua (Jesus) is God, but the Gnostic view is that Yeshua is a Son of God, a created being, albeit a spiritual Master far more advanced in wisdom than Earth humans. The Ra suggests that Yeshua is from one of the higher dimensions who chose to incarnate on Earth to assist our spiritual growth

The Commandments Delusion

Concerning the Christian 10 Commandments we can see that they are a set of moral benchmarks against which we can measure our own behaviour if we wish to. They have the effect of increasing our awareness of moral standards which we may otherwise not be aware of, but attempting to obey the 10 Commandments as a way of working a ticket to a better position in our next life isn't going to work because (1) they are too demanding for most people to actually obey, and (2) they are irrelevant for that purpose anyway

The Commandmants are irrelevant because we know, or a least we think that we know, that God, the Source, is Light and Love. Advancement nearer to that presence, to God, will be through repentence and love. It will never be through obedience to a set of commandmants

The next point is that we are not able to obey the Commandments. As we pass through this life we will most probably discover that during a busy day we often forget the Commandmants and fall short of success

What are the Commandmants

The Christian Commandments have a close similarity to the Hebrew Law of Moses and to the earlier seven moral laws of Noah known as the Noahide Laws. Here they are as they are often written by Christians

You must not ...

You must ...

To modernise the Commandments we may like to replace 'donkey' with sport utility vehicle (SUV), and perhaps modify 'his' to 'his/her/whatever', but the rest could pretty much apply to any time or generation

The first 2 commands as stated above suggest the existence of various ET, referred to as Gods, and that one of them known as Yahweh was establishing itself as the spiritual master of the Hebrew people

What About Free Will?

Referring to the teaching of Paul in the New Testament we see that human free will is a central platform of Christian thought. So if free will is a fundamental proposition for Earth humans then an ET demanding obedience to a set of imposed rules seems like a red flag, a warning that all is not well

Using the same logic one may wonder about the authority of any religious group that demands obedience to a set of dogma, be it commandments, rituals, attendence, or the very popular demand that you pay 1/10 of your income to the organisation

The Commandmants as Benchmarks

The Commandments can probably be obeyed to a high degree by highly advanced spiritual humans, but probably not by normal people. Whilst the social Commandments look fairly easy to obey at first reading when we drill down into the deeper requirements they become so demanding that applying them in daily living is practically impossible

You Shall Not Kill Command

Consider 'You shall not kill'. This commandment is normally taken to mean that murder is wrong and we must not cause the death of anyone by violent means. That sounds reasonable and many people will have no problem with the command, especially if they think they could be a victim of violence, but take that command a step further and consider 'You shall not kill' to include the intended death of an animal, a hope, an inspiration, or even a thought. This understanding means that we shouldn't kill anything at all, not an ant, a fly, nor someone's belief or their aspirations!

At this level of thinking you shall not kill is a prohibition that involves many aspects of our physical world and an extension that merges it into the spiritual dimension of aspirations and thoughts. What appears to be a simple directive is actually extremely demanding. So how about the next Commandment that that demands that 'You shall not steal'?

You Shall Not Steal Command

This Commandment can mean stealing possessions, ideas, affection, happiness, taking honey from a beehive, or even milk from a cow! Expanding the example of stealing from a cow is revealing. To get milk from cows commercially involves confining the animals, killing or separating calves from the cows, and taking the cow's milk

The Commandment to not steal is broken at every point because we steal the cow's freedom, its calf, its milk and even its feelings when we create sorrow for the animals

Perhaps with the exception of monks and nuns, we are unlikely to think about the consequences of stealing milk or honey. Normal people don't check their daily activities for such seeming trivia, which is perhaps unfortunate because the world would be a more pleasant place to live in if people were to show more respect for the Creation's lower life forms

Don't Commit Adultery

Concerning adultery Yeshua used the same spiritual principle to explain that the intention, or thought, to commit adultery is just as serious as actually having committed the act "... You have heard that it was said: Do not commit adultery. But I tell you this; anyone who looks at a woman to satisfy his lust has in fact already committed adultery with her in his heart" Matthew 5:28

Rules as Awareness Enhancers

So the Commandments are high benchmarks which Paul, the Christian teacher said were the means by which we were to recognise Sin. In the same manner as darkness helps us to appreciate light, so the 10 Commandments help us to realise our dependence on God's love and forgiveness

The Commandments are not a series of cookie cutter rules that open the gates to Heaven, whatever that may be, but they are helpful within an overall philosophy of developing and applying love during this life experience. When we recognise our own inability to conform with the Commandments we are more likely to forgive and less likely to judge others when they err

The ideal, from the perspective of a Christian, is to want to obey the Commandmants, at least the social ones. This is likely to become a reality when we start to see others as just like ourselves, people on a journey towards greater understanding of life. They are not better than us, nor worse. They are just different manifestations of the Creation, all of which are loved and capable of giving love to others

So Who is Yehweh?

I don't have a glib answer to who Yahweh may be but I suspect it is an ET whose motivations and intents may have a political component. If Yahweh is the God of the Jews then that raises a number of questions

Unclean Goyim

As a teenager in London many years ago I discovered that my Jewish employer treated me as a Goy and so by definition I was unclean and unworthy of the fruit that his customers bought from his shop ... although apparently I was clean enough to be exploited for a weekly pittances

So if Yahweh is a God of Love and compassion why was my Jewish employer looking down on me as inferior? I was just a young lad at the time so I knew nothing about ego and the fact that love never looks down on anyone

Are ET Influencing Us?

Then when I wonder about the current Middle Eastern conflict and the Second World War Nazi regime targeting the Jewish people I thought that perhaps we are experiencing a conflict that exists in a higher dimension which has spilled over into our lower 3rd dimension world

Support for this speculative opinion is given by Paul in his letter to the Ephesian church where it is recorded that he said; "Our battle is not against human forces but against the rulers and authorities and their dark powers that govern this world. We are struggling against the spirits and supernatural forces of evil" [Ephesians 6:12]

So who or what are the dark powers? Paul seems to suggest that they are supernatural and evil, the Yin of a Yin-Yang whole, and that they support rulers and authorities, but by inference, they are not supporting the Christain readers of Paul's letter. This is all pretty weird stuff, but maybe we should be listening up a little more

If you are in doubt and disbelief check out the top menu for more info. We're far from being alone in the universe. That's a lie passed on to us generation by generation, but we now have the technology to know and share which is allowing us to become more aware of what's happening openly in plain sight
