Semantics....God, Love, Me

Here's how this works; here's how we begin to graduate from God, or to come home to Him as us, however you choose to see it. Replace the word “God” with the word “Love” and then with the word “I” (meaning you, not HMC).

God loves me. Love loves me. I love me.
God made me. Love made me. I made me.
God will provide. Love will provide. I will provide.
God has a plan. Love has a plan. I have a plan.
God loves you. Love loves you. I love you.
God will protect you. Love will protect you I will protect you.
God gives me strength. Love gives me strength. I give me strength.
God knows best. Love knows best. I know best.
God never fails. Love never fails. I never fail.
God knows me. Love knows me. I know me.
God is always w/ me. Love is always w/ me. I am always w/ me.
Know God. Know Love. Know me.
Follow God. Follow Love. Follow me.
Worship God. Worship Love. Worship me.
God is love. Love is love. I am love.
Have faith in God. Have faith in Love. Have faith in me.

All of the above statements are true. God wants us to stand on our own feet. He is always there but he wants us to walk on our own. To lean on each other when we need to. God sustains you, breathes life in to you, cares for you as a parent loves a child…I do those things for you, Love does those things. Love is me. And you and you and you.

Take the power back from Him and put it where it belongs, with you. When a great NFL receiver catches the game winning touchdown, he looks skyward and says "Thank you God"...."God gave me my gifts and made that catch possible." I say NO! You worked hard for 10 hours a day for 15 years, and your trainers worked hard, and your parents and coaches worked hard, and you and your quarterback practiced time and time again, and that's WHO made it possible. The amorphous faceless timeless disembodied deity did not catch that football. You get the credit. Praise YOU. Praise all of you, all of ye Gods.

If we can all believe and live what I have seen, what I have felt, the God-love, then we will all be ministers to each other, we will all be divine, we will all fill each other up, give each other faith, love each other as God loves us, we will be walking living prophets, extensions of Him, God incarnate. Thus we will not need religion anymore. We will live post-religion. “But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.” Religion is an imperfect interpretation of the God-love. It is prophecy of what will come to earth, eventually. Jesus saw it, lived it, knew it, and he tried to tell us about it, but he didn’t give it to us, he didn’t show us how to live it….he tried to, but he couldn’t. We live in a very imperfect world, and that's how I know Jesus failed. When Heaven gets here, when we all become God, the prophecies will cease. When the perfect comes to us (Heaven on Earth) the imperfect (religion) disappears.

I realize this is all semantics. When I say you graduate from God, I mean you walk into a world where you are so filled with God that He as a name and a space and a place and a person and a story disappears. You inherit him, all of him, so his Christian shell disappears. You are so complete and so all knowing and so all loving and so all bliss that you need no more external deity. So for many of you, it may be better put this way....instead of graduating from God you are born into God. You become him, he becomes you, and you put the old word "God" aside. You are cleaved no more.

We're talking about the same thing people. It's just that I have been there.
