The New Paradigm:
It is now commonly established that there is one God - the God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed.
And there is no other.
This God is the Divinity of Buddhism and the Absolute of Hinduism.
And He is the Most High God.
All things exist in this one God and God is all things and more.
The world was created after the Big Bang had cooled down to create spiral galaxies of stars with circling planets.
Life on earth evolved from the first life in the sea to land creatures then to animals, birds, and humans.
God was intimately involved in all these changes.
This God has sent many messengers to humans throughout history.
Not only to Israel but to all human cultures.
His footprints can be seen in all human races.
Like the other messengers Jesus was a human being who made contact with God. He was the guiding spirit of the Age of Pisces and his revelation was a breakthrough in human understanding of God.
Jesus was not God.
Mary was not a virgin.
Jesus' death on the cross was not atonement for the sins of humanity.
Jesus' death was at the hands of earthly authorities who were threatened by his popularity. God did not require his death.
Jesus' resurrection was a spiritual not a physical event.
Jesus is not the only path to God.
God is the Father/Mother of all human beings so all people are our brothers and sisters. We are truly a family of humanity.
The nature of this God is wholly benevolent.
He is Father/Mother of all living things.
He is transcendent, sublime, beautiful, and good.
His qualities are: mercy, forgiveness, compassion, faithfulness, truthfulness, and love.
His Love is steadfast, reliable, and unconditional.
This God does not punish us or keep records of our behavior.
He loves us like a Father/Mother and will not condemn us.
No one is excluded from God's Love.
All races, sexual orientations, and faiths are acceptable to God.
God loves even those who have rejected Him.
There is no devil. no dark forces, no hell.
Only God's Love.
Sexual abstinence is not required for relationship with God.
Sex is natural part of God's good creation.
And all orientations are equally acceptable to Him.
In the end we all return to the God who gave us Life.
We die into His Love. And go to be with God and our loved ones who have gone before us.
NB 2376 CE is the year that the vernal equinox precesses from Pisces into the Sign of Aquarius.
