How would it make sense for a seemingly otherwise typical human being to actually be the creator of the universe? Everyone knows that God is all powerful and all knowing so what is up with this guy that is neither one?
1 John 3:2 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.
What’s in it for me? (adaptation of the gospel of Jesus Christ)
Which one makes more sense ?
(1) God commands his children to obey him or they will be punished.
(2) God teaches his children with loving kindness how to maximize their own peace and joy.
Establishing a permanent, unwavering sense of peace and joy across all of humanity:
Do the best that you can to express loving-kindness to others by feeling what they are feeling.
It is better than the other commandments to [love one another] because it detects subtle nuances of harmful callousness that would otherwise go unnoticed.
This commandment (like the greatest commandments) overrules anything (including other commandments) that conflicts with it to the slightest degree.
This purpose of this blog is to unite humanity in righteousness to establish Heaven on Earth.
