God of the Bible –and the Christian call for Human Rights
Posted on December 15th, 2013

By Charles.S.Perera

Human rights is the new arm of the former colonizers of the West who in their long history of  wars of conquest, crusades, and Inquisitions massacred innocent people of the world with their unholy desire to Christianise the World.  The inspiration for those unholy wars lies in their heritage coming from the vengeful God of the Bible who lacked  forgiveness, love or compassion.

The God of the Bible was the God of the Jews- the Israelites  the chosen people.  His cruelty was not acceptable to the  expansionist desire of the Western Nations who nevertheless wanted a God to take with them in  their wars of the  conquest of the  world and bring the natives under their control.

Therefore the old Bible written in Hebrew was re written  by the Greeks transferring a watered down God of the Bible into the New Testament as an acceptable God  forgiving, loving, and  compassionate, sitting in heaven with a wife, the son and the Holy Ghost.  But yet the West cannot help the character of the  original vengeful, cruel and unforgiving God of the Bible seeping into the implied character of the re-invented God  of the New Testament.

This is the God  that the West inherited.  It is still his wars ”the  Christian Holy Wars the West is carrying on against the feeble and the weak in different forms, with guns, bombs, threat, resolutions for violation of human rights, and demands for  international investigations into the affairs of the developing nations.

At the beginning the Holy Wars were carried conducted in the name of the God of the Bible carrying  with them the Ark of  God, thereafter they carried with them the Cross and the  torch, the Cross signifying the God of the New Testament, the torch to burn the heretics and the  unbelievers at the Stake,  then they carried the Holy Banner with a cross on it in Crusades against the Saracens , followed by the Bible carrying missionaries in white cassocks in the wars of conquests and colonisation, and now they carry with them the call for Human rights with bombs and NATO Forces to subjugate the developing Independent Nations  and for regime change accusing them for violation of Human Rights.

The God of the Bible the west inherited made the Western man.  The unholy cruelty, hatred, and vengefulness of the God of the Bible was such that he got his chosen people to kill those who trespassed  his laws and worshipped other Gods, making  killing the culture of the West.

The Greeks who feared that the cruelty of the God of the Bible will deter the followers coming into their Christian fold,  burrowed him nevertheless, to dress him differently and present him  in the New Testament as a God who forgives, generous and compassionate.  But that did not make the Western Nations that embraced  the God of the New Testament, peaceful, loving and generous. The war mongering western Nations wanted the God as an emblem of peace for their expansionist wars, in which they killed those who did not accept their “democracy” as the  God of the Bible did against the Philistines.

Having inherited Christianity as a religion one has to go to a great extent to explain to the faithful what seems ungodly in the Bible.  The God of the Bible detested  receiving cold sacrifice,  it had to be  bloody burnt sacrifice of fattened sheep, fattened cows or calves.  Today the believers should take a second look at their Holy Bible to see the misdeeds of the God, and see to what extent the God of the New Testament is different from the other of the Holy BibleolyHolyHhH.

Cain and Abel were the children of Adam and Eve the fruits of their first sin.  Abel became a keeper of sheep, and  Cain a tiller of ground. Cain offered to the Lord  the best of the fruit of the ground, but his brother Abel offered God the fattest of  firstlings of his flock.   And God had respect to Abel and his offering, and had no respect to that of Cain, which sowed the seed  of jealousy as a result of which Cain killed Abel.  The God did not foresee that the act of his demonstration of preference to Abel’s offerings  would lead Cain to kill his brother Abel.  Therefore the God was responsible for the murder of Abel by his brother. The God of the Bible was taking sides putting one against the other.( see Genesis C.4.4.5)

His creation was an utter disaster. He wanted only one man and a woman on his earth, and created Adam and Eve.  He could not foresee that a snake would one day make his great creation a failure.  He hated the men and women who had come into the world through the first sin of his created man Adam and woman Eve – ” And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” (First Book of Moses Genesis Chapter 6 .6)

The God then accepted the failure of his creation and decided to take vengeance by destroying every thing that came out from what he created.

“And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” (First Book of Moses Genesis Chapter 6. 7)

 Only Noah found grace.  And it was with his help that the God unable to create another world by himself, planned his second creation.

But in the second  creation the  God did with Noah as a helping hand, he makes the same mistakes he made with his first creation.  God of the Bible was not the infallible God  the faithful are made to believe.  He had his chosen people the Hebrews-the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  They were in Egypt oppressed by the Egyptians.  God wanted  to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and bring them to a land  flowing with milk and honey.

The God hated all those who followed other gods and severely punished his chosen people when they erred in their faith in God. The God of the Bible did not pardon the faults of any one.  He chose Moses to  deliver his chosen people from the Egyptians to the promised land, but with all the difficulties, troubles and  tribulations  Moses had taking the chosen people through the wilderness into the promised land, Moses was not allowed to enter it along with them.

The God asked Moses to go to Mount Nebo and see from there the land of Canaan which He had promised for the children of Israel, and die there.

 “I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.” (Deuteronomy Chapter 34.4)

“and die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:

 “because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Mer’ibah”Ka’desh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel. “Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.” (Deuteronomy,Chapter 32.51)

That is how the God of the Bible rewarded Moses who helped Him  deliver His chosen people the Children of Israel out of Egypt.

The God of the Bible was very cruel. He did not know how to pardon even those who sinned but later regretted.  In order to “soften the minds” of the Pharaohs to make them release the God’s  chosen people the children of Israel for their exodus towards the promised land, the   almighty  God of the Bible sent to Egypt ten plagues killing Egyptian men, women and children  causing them most terrible suffering.  The God could not find any other less cruel means to ” soften the minds ” of the Pharaohs to release his chosen people. The God of the Bible had none of the divine love  he had for his chosen people, for those who trespassed his “divine patience”.

No one had seen the God of the Bible.  God showed himself it is said in the Bible to Moses.  “God revealed himself to Moses on Mt. Horeb in the burning bush (Ex. 3:2-15). Yet what Moses beheld was the remarkable bush that burned but was not consumed (vs. 2) ”

The God appeared before his chosen people when they were traversing the wilderness in the form of a column of smoke during day, and as a column of fire by night.

The God of the Bible spoke to the people through his prophets, and the judges.  The God “spoke” to the Kings of Israel through the prophets. The only true God according to the Bible is the God of Israel, other Gods are false. The God punished the children of Israel for following other Gods,  such as Baal the Gods of Philistines.

In  order to  see the vengefulness, cruelty and lack of divine love of the God of the Bible let us see the reign of  Saul the King of Israel  as recounted in the Holy Bible ( King James Version) from the beginning to the end of his reign.  The rest of the Bible is more or  less composed of  similar episodes with added variations of frightening episodes of God’s hard hearted vengeance even upon his own chosen people when they trespassed his warnings.

Samuel the Judge-the man of God was old.  The elders of Israel who did not want him to appoint his sons to succeed him asked for a King as other Nations.  When Samuel announced it to the  God , God  asked him to accept the demands of the people, as he had already decided to make Saul the King of Israel.

The God  always speaks (through his prophets) highly of his choice, without giving a thought to what he would turn out to be later.  The God of the Bible was not omniscient- all knowing.

Now these matters of administration are between the Judge and the God.  The Judge never sees the God he only hears his voice, “Now the LORD had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came……”  (1 Samuel Chapter 9.15)

 The people believe that the God has spoken to the Judge the seer.( prophet, judge or seer are the same)  The King cannot consult the God directly, he had to go through the Prophet-the judge.

Now Nahash the Amonite  was preparing to conquer Jabesh.  When Saul heard of this ,

” …. the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly.

“And he took a yoke of oxen, and hewed them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the coasts of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, Whosoever cometh not forth after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be done unto his oxen. And the fear of the LORD fell on the people, and they came out with one consent.” (I Samuel Chapter 11.6,7)

 What great tiding to be sent as coming from a God  and what a way to instil fear of Lord to get peoples’ consent ?

 “And it was so on the morrow, that Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in the morning watch, and slew the Ammonites until the heat of the day: and it came to pass, that they which remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together.”  (I Samuel Chapter 11,11)

 The people of Israel gathered at Gilgal  and Samuel  anointed Saul as the King of Israel.

It was through fear that the people were made to believe in the God of the Bible.

Samuel said to the people

“If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD; then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God: but if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD; then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers.

 Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes. Is it not wheat harvest today? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king.(I Samuel Chapter 12.4,15,16,17)

 So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel. (I Samuel Chapter 12.18)

 Samuel spoke to Saul and told him that the God commands  him, “Now go and smite Am’alek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.” (I Samuel Chapter 15.3)

 “But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.” (I Samuel Chapter 15.9)

The God was not pleased because Saul did not kill every thing living in Amal’ekites, as the God had commanded. Samuel warned of God’s wrath more than his love.  The God always asked the prophets to remind the people of what He had done for them.

“Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amal’ekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past”

 “And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.”( I Samuel Chapter15.32,33)

 “only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.

 But if ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed, both ye and your king ” , said Samuel before he departed.(ISamuel Chapter12.24,25)

 Now Samuel had a son Jonathan he was in command of an Army of thousand men. When the Philistines declared war,  Jonathan smote the Philistine Garrison in Geba. Saul announced  it to his people and asked them to gather with him in Gilgal to fight the Philistines.

“And the Philistines gathered themselves together to fight with Israel, thirty thousand chariots, and six thousand horsemen, and people as the sand which is on the seashore in multitude: and they came up, and pitched in Michmash, eastward from Beth”a’ven.”(I Samuel Chapter14.5)

Seeing the Philistine Armies the people of Israel who had gathered around Samuel was frightened.

” When the men of Israel saw that they were in a strait, (for the people were distressed,) then the people did hide themselves in caves, and in thickets, and in rocks, and in high places, and in pits. And some of the Hebrews went over Jordan to the land of Gad and Gil’e-ad. As for Saul, he was yet in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling.” .”(I Samuel Chapter14.6,7)

 King Saul did not know how to face the Philistine Army.  Samuel who had promised to meet him in Seven days had still not turned up.  The King had no time to make a bloody sacrifice to the Lord.

 “And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering. « 

 Just then  Samuel turned up.  Samuel was vexed for the offering of a burnt sacrifice to the Lord and asked why ?

Saul said,  “…..I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that thou camest not within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered themselves together at Michmash;

 Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the LORD: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering.”

Samuel said that Saul had not done as he had been commanded and that the Lord is offended, and that Saul may not continue to rule, and Samuel went away angry. (I Samuel Chapter 13.9-13)

Now all the people had run away, and there were only  600 people along side Saul to fight the Philistine Army.  Not even a blacksmith was to be found in Israel.  On the day of the battle there was neither sword nor spear in the hands  of the people who were with Saul and his son Jonathan.

But Jonathan without informing the King went with his armourbearer to the Philistine Garrison. The Philistines seeing them said, “come up unto us” Jonathan taking that as a sign told his amourbearer ” the Lord hath delivered them into the hands of Israel.”

Jonathan and his man then fell on them killing  20 Philistines in a surprise attack and put the whole of the Philistine Army in disarray.  There was great panic in the Camp. Saul noticing this  brought the Ark of God, collected his people and attacked the Philistines successfully,  hence the Bible says the Lord saved Israel that day. So that no body could say that was a coincidence.

The people were tired and fatigued after the fighting.  But they could not profit from the victory because, Saul laid an oath on the people “cursed be the man who eats food until it is evening that I may be avenged on mine enemies.”

 The people  walked into the woods and saw there was honey fallen on the ground.  But they dare not put their hand to eat the honey as they feared the curse Saul had laid on them.

But Jonathan the son of Saul was not there when the oath was administered and he was not aware of it .  Hence when Jonathan went to the wood he saw the honey fallen on the ground.  He dipped the staff in his hand into  the honey and tasted it.   Then the people came to him and told about the oath Saul had laid on them  forbidding them to partake of any food.

Jonathan said his father was wrong.  He said his eyes became enlivened after tasting the honey, and asked how much more the people would be happy if they had eaten freely of the spoils of their enemies.  The people then attacked the Philistines  and ate freely of the spoils of sheep, oxen and calves  taken from the enemies.  Saul hearing of it  was angered and asked to roll a great stone, and  commanded  the people to bring  in their living spoils sheep or calf  there and slay and eat them. Then Saul built an altar for the Lord.

Saul then prayed to the Lord and asked  his counsel to go to war with the Philistines. The God did not answer.  Saul thought that the God did not answer as some one had sinned.  Saul spoke to the people and said, ” who ever sinned I shall have him killed even if it is my son Jonathan “.  Casting lots , he found that  Jonathan had sinned. Saul asked Jonathan what  sin he had done.  Jonathan said that he knew not of the Oath his father had laid and he tasted honey in the Wood.  Saul then said that Jonathan should die.

“And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel? God forbid: as the LORD liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.” (I Samuel Chapter 14.41-45)

The Lord had spoken to Samuel and told him that the Lord  rejects Saul for his disobedience for not carrying out his  Command , which was to “…. smite Am’alek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”

When Samuel the prophet came to Saul, he  told Samuel that he had performed the Commandments of the Lord.  Then Samuel asked  Saul, if  you  obeyed the commandment of the Lord how is it that I hear the bleating of sheep and lowing of cattle.  Saul said that it was the desire of the people to save the sheep and oxen for sacrifice to the Lord, and they have brought Agag the king of Am’alek, and have utterly destroyed the Amal’ekites.

“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” (I Samuel Chapter 17.23)

 “Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amal’ekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past.

 But alas Samuel said to Agag the King of Amal’ekites, “As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal

 Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gib’e-ah of Saul. And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the LORD repented that he had made Saul king over Israel.(I Samuel Chapter 15.32-35)

 So ends the rule of  Saul the King of Israel.  .

The Lord of the Holy Bible being the God of the people of Israel and none other, it became necessary for non Israelites, to find a suitable God for themselves.  But they could not deny the God of the Holy Bible as it would amount to denying God the creator.  Therefore, they had to find a different Strategy white washing the cruel, unforgiving and vengeful God of the Bible, make a different God of him. Hence they began by making  him father a son.

It was a difficult process.  The God of the holy Bible only created.  He created Adam and from a bone of  Adam  created  Eve. The world the God created was peopled with the Children issuing from  his first creation of  Adam and Eve.   The God cannot have his own son unless he impregnates a woman.

But  those Greek writers  (there were eight it is said who wrote the New Testament), to avoid the obstacles  preparing a modern God from  the ancient  God of the Bible to suit the  Nations other than that of the Jews the children of  Israel, invented the immaculate conception, making an omniscient, loving, and a forgiving God out of the God of the Bible. A God who sends his son to  take on himself the sins of the people.

“The central aspect of Christ’s death on the cross was atonement. He accomplished this by offering Himself on the cross as a sacrifice in order to remove the guilt of our sins. John the Baptist proclaimed this when he saw Jesus approaching “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29)

Thus the  Greeks wrote the New Testament changing the character of the other God of the Bible.  The God of the Bible is different from the God of the New Testament.

The Angels of the Holy Bible did not have wings.  They came in twos or threes and brought messages foreboding from the God.

 “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground  (Genesis 19.1)

 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORDout of heaven;

and he overthrew those cities,  and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. (Genesis 19.24,25)”

That is not different from what Americans did in Vietnam, or NATO Forces did in Libya. They rained upon Vietnam Napalm, and upon Libya Bombs

The Holy Bible is called the Old Testament , and the  Greeks followed it with the New Testament.  But the Lord’s war continues taking different forms causing more disaster

    1 John 1:8,10 – the most characteristic feature of sin is all of it’s aspects is that is directed against god.

    IF that is the case, read and see how church treated the POPE Pious XII – the pope during the second world war time. They did not canonize him or beatify him.

    financial and sex scandles inside vatican, thousands of sexual molestation all around the world, how Church hand dles condom -issue , HIV aids patients within the Church.

    A good move but PROPAGANDA is only 10% of diplomacy. REAL reason to target SL is GEOPOLITICAL (75%). Tamilian votes is also a SMALL consideration (10%). Others 5%.

    We cannot expect any positive from the UKUSA-EU-Endia camp after another year of CHINESE developments.

    When UKUSA-EU-Endia looks at SL through their ANTI-CHINA glasses, they see an ENEMY!!

    Faced with the prospect of a third UN human rights council resolution in as many years, Sri Lanka on Sunday launched a diplomatic offensive to counter international pressure over alleged rights abuses during the final phase of its civil war in 2009.

    Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya, the military spokesman, said some eight video documentaries produced by the army had been dispatched to Sri Lankan missions overseas and the UNHRC member states.

    “These videos will give real facts about the true situation with regard to allegations levelled by the Channel 4 (British TV) and others,” Wanigasooriya stated adding that “the world will come to know about the many crimes committed by the LTTE”.

    The videos are part of the external affairs ministry’s briefings to Colombo’s diplomatic community on the post-conflict developments.

    The government has also debunked the figures thrown at it by international agencies including the UN that some 40,000 people were killed in the Tamil-dominated north during the final phase of the 30-year ethnic conflict.

    Minister Champika Ranawaka who is a senior figure of the Sinhala nationalist JHU party told Japanese peace envoy Yasushi Akashi that if the army wanted to kill Tamils it would not have accepted the surrender of around 11,000 LTTE cadres four years ago.

    Akashi was on a visit last week. Ranawaka told Akashi it was unfair for war crimes charges to be raised against Sri Lanka based on false data.

    He said a large number of the Sinhala majority community evicted from the north and east during the LTTE’s separatist campaign had not been allowed to return.

    He said that in 1981 there were 20,000 Sinhalese living in the north but today the figure was as low as 800.

    Sri Lanka is expected to face its third successive resolution criticizing its human rights record at the UN Human Rights Council next March.

    Both previous resolutions urged Sri Lanka for speedier implementation of recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).

    India and US had voted in favour of the resolutions.”

    Thank you Charles.

    Indeed a very instructive and eye opening article.

  4. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    My personal opinion of the Christian God. The God of the old Testament (or the Torah) is called “Yahveh”. When Yahveh created the Universe he also created man and the garden of Eden where man and beast lived in harmony or in my opinion in an unnatural static state where the rules of nature did not exist.

    After Yahweh created the heaven and the Universe a heavenly war took place between the Angel of light or Lucifer whose beauty was so great he commited the sin of arrogance by comparing himself to Yahweh himself. Arch Angel Gabriel defeated Angel Lucifer and Yahweh created yet another world called hell. A place of eternal damnation where the most vile and wicked are forced to live till the end of the world. Or in other words Hell is as mortal as the world while heaven is immortal and will continue to exist well after the the Apocolipse. The heavenly war also created that which is purely evil.

    Yahweh seeing Adam as incomplete took a rib from him and created woman kind in the form of Eve. Since they were made of pure innocence they saw no shame in their nudity. Since evil has already been created Lucifer took the form of a snake and persuaded Eve to eat a fruit from the one tree Yahweh forbid them to eat. Lucifer never lied to them but questioned why God would prevent them from eating this fruit and gave the answer that by eating this fruit all “knowledge” will be attained. The moment Eve at of the fruit and persuaded Adam to do the same they did acquire that knowledge. They realized the shame of their nudity in the presence of the other and for disobeying Yahweh Adam and Eve were driven from a garden of eternal bliss but no hope or aspirations.

    Adam and Eve were driven to earth and beget Cain and Able. the learnt to toil the soil to produce food and make clothing to hide their shame. Simply put if not for Lucifer mankind would not exist. If Lucifer did not convince Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit they would have lived in that unnatural garden for all time. Yet in Catholicism every baby is born with “the original sin” commited by Eve which only can be removed through baptism.

    As explained in the article Yahweh was an angry God who destroyed cites such as Sodom and Gemorra

  5. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Sodom and Gomorrah in the same manner the US destroyed the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Forgiveness and compassion were not his strongest attributes. When Arch Angel Gabriel told Mary she will be of child without conception Lord Jesus Christ was born. But as the article stated the sole purpose of Christs birth or the avatar of Yahweh was to cleanse mankind of sin and show compassion. outside of that Lord Jesus Christ promised nothing else. When fellow Christians pray to Christ for a miraculous cure or for a wish to come true their prayers are not answered for that is not the purpose of the avatar of Jesus Christ.

    It is true that Christians have killed in the name of Jesus Christ but the most killing were done by secularists, communists to Atheists. The Nazi Regime did not believe in Jesus Christ, and one of the worst wars was “operation Barbarossa” when Nazi soldiers dressed in summer uniforms ended up fighting the red army of Russia in the coldest of winters. Both the Nazis and the Russian Communists did not believe in a Christian or any God. The massive deaths that numbered in the tens of millions in the Russian revolution to the Mao’s China reached well over a 100 million and they were not Christians or Buddhists, they were Atheists or Communists

    Finally regarding the reference to the wings worn by Christian Angels is true for they did not exist. Nowhere in the Bible are angels stated to have wings. secondly angels are always male. there are no female angels as for the halo the only ancient faith to show elaborate halos was Buddhism. Statues of the Buddha with elaborate halos as the Mathuran school of Buddhas or the Sanchi Buddha show beautifully crafted halos while Christianity at that time showed none. The halo came into Christianity many centuries later. One final note the rosary which is an emblem of the Catholic faith did not exist in European religion such as ancient Greece or Rome but was present among the Hindus and Buddhists centuries before the time of Christ.

  6. Fran Diaz Says:

    All religions have a mythical wing attached to it, which though beautiful can lead to confusion, some religions more so than others.

    The Masters/Gurus when alive, from time to time, gave a direct experience of “the Kingdom of Heaven within” or “Truth within” to their followers, and the disciples tried to explain this feeling of Bliss in words. Thus religions were born but the true feeling went away when the Masters/Gurus passed away.

    Certainly wars and accumulation of wealth are not the way to feel human Bliss of Heaven within, or Truth.

    Meditation and a socially acceptable life style will help access the ‘the Kingdom of Heaven within’ or ‘Truth within’ even in the absence of the Masters/Gurus. Why not try Meditation, when we have tried so hard in other ways to feel good ? If not Bliss, Wisdom arises through Meditation and health benefits too. Worth trying.
