To A Friend Who Just Acknowledged God's Existence
The most pivotal aspect of knowing God is to develop a real relationship with Him. There are two aspects to this journey: talking to God and reading about him. God is good.
The ol’ book (Bible) has no equal. It has inspired more art and human development than anything in the human experience. Developing a dialogue with God and learning to hear him and know him is the ultimate height of life. I often feel God’s breath or spirit when I read this holy anthology.
There is also something about Isa (Jesus) that cannot be ignored. Humanity cannot save itself. We cannot get out of our pit or reach God, but God can reach down with his right hand (Isa) and pull us back to reality. This human extension of God is so unique that he, like the book, has become the ultimate pinnacle of human inspiration and development. He is both the mesikh of the Islamic Koran and a major guru of Hinduism - Gandhi’s greatest model. I also believe he is the template that superheroes and Hollywood leads are based on. Whether consciously or subconsciously, the human spirit acknowledges its need for a messiah in every culture, ethnicity, and geographic space.
Until we meet,
