Here’s the question:

Can we be like Jesus –
I mean really like Jesus?

Or will he, instead, need to be eternally
Praying and paying
For us?

In other words,
Is it possible for each of us to communicate directly with God,
Or will we need to continue reciting denominational prayers
And forwarding them on to Jesus
For some later delivery?

Should we really be anxious about experiencing God individually –
Since, if God is Love, shouldn’t we feel free to run right to God –
Knowing God’s there, waiting for us?

Theology, steeples, sermons, and hymns –
All, in their varied ways, repeat: “Jesus is Lord” –

But that isn’t what Jesus prayed for –
Instead, he wanted each of us to become our own miracle.

He taught:

In this life – it’s you – and only you – who are eternal!

  1. I like it! I like it.

    Long ago I decided my thoughts about God came down to:

    1. IF: there is a God, and
    2. IF: God is good (note: the old testament God may not have been so good, right?), then:
    3. What would God want from me: To pray to God, to follow rituals, to stop using the brain given to me and slavishly follow what religious leaders say? Or would God want me to be be kind to other humans (his creations), to be kind to animals, to leave this earth a better place than I found it?
    4. Then: If my life’s goal is to leave the world a better place than I found it, whether God exists or does not has no bearing on my behavior.

    Isn’t this correct?


    • It sounds like you made a rational decision about a basically irrational matter that, when you were younger, permitted you to live a holy life, however, without all the benefits that the greatest love relationship in your life would have provided you. If Bruce Bernard ever allowed himself to fall completely in love with God, what would that look like? Given your intensity, I can’t even imagine!
