Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone;

We are continuing with chapter two, paragraph three in the Letter of Aul to the Omans: "If we follow in the love and kindness of God, there are wonderful results. It doesn't matter what religion we follow, if any. Being a Buddhist, or Hindu, or Muslim, or Christian. or whatever, won't pull any special weight with God. God doesn't care so much about that. He looks at the heart. He looks beyond what others see and say about you and even beyond what you say about yourself. God knows the full truth of your being."

Commentary: You know that there are good and loving people in every religion. God does not favor one religion over another. He looks at the individual heart of everyone. The different religions appeal to different cultures and circumstances. It is folly to claim that there is only one true religion, yet many people are still doing that today, especially Christians and Muslims. I'd say relax and let go of any thoughts of superiority. God really does love everyone equally. How can that be? Because we are all part of God, part of the life everlasting.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello everyone;
We are continuing with chapter two, paragraph two of Aul's letter to the Omans: "It is better to work on improving your own self than to point out the wrong doing of others. God is not fooled by anyone's posturings and self-righteous behavior. Yet God is not interested in punishing you or anyone else. God loves us and wants the best for us. If we have faults, let's admit them and work on them. We don't need to pretend we are perfect. God will lead us on to better behavior as we rejoice in his love and kindness."

Commentary: God is not fooled by any outward show or any evasive action we may take; so we might as well be honest with ourselves and admit our shortcomings. But that doesn't mean we should condemn ourselves. We are all learning how to behave, and Love is leading the way. Correct your self in a gentle way. Be kind to yourself and to others. That is the way of diversity in oneness.
