I think it is true to say that only the most un-spiritually minded people would not agree that jealousy, vengeance, anger and judgementalism are some of the worst traits that can be attributed to human beings, and they only exist when the ego is present. I think it is also true to say that only the most un-spiritually minded people would not agree that God transcends the ego. So, having said this, the question on my lips is, “why does the God of organised religion possess all of these most unsavoury traits”? The answer is because the God of organised religion simply doesn’t exist.
The concept of an angry, jealous and vengeful God, who will also pass judgement on us when we leave this earthly life; and either allow us into heaven or cast us into hell, is simply one of many fear-based methods used by the church to control the masses. Blasphemy is also another ridiculous concept pedalled by the church. One can only be offended when the ego is present, and as already stated, God is beyond human ego and cannot be offended. In truth, to seek to offend another, whether Godly or human will ultimately only harm the one seeking to offend. Even the name “God”, was created by humans for the sole purpose of communicating with an all-powerful but imaginary being, separate from the rest of the human race. The Creative Force, however, exists as the One eternal Self, in a state of pure bliss (Love) as infinite awareness.
