Predictions can spread fear and panic even when they are meant to be fair warning to prepare for possible disaster. When predictions bring an angry sky-god into the mix things really get serious.

Using mythology and scriptures written by humans to spread fear among people is unloving behavior at it’s worst.

A good rule of thumb: if the scripture OR a “prophet” speaks in oppressive terms and tones and threatens punishment or tribulation, then it is NOT from a Supreme Love that forgives unconditionally and generously accepts us in spite of our prodigal behavior.

It is Love speaking in comforting and restorative words that brings about change. The change happens freely and without demands. So “comfort my people and tell them they have nothing to fear.”

Oppressive and threatening words do not bring on genuine change because Love never said them! Such words can make nothing happen. Do not be fooled by mere surface change which is only BS!

I wonder if that is what Alexander Hamilton meant with “”In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. And heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution.”

I think Jesus used the same rule. It would explain his reaction to the “eye for an eye” scripture and the “stone a woman taken in adultery” scripture.

The sooner we realize that all scriptures are NOT “holy” just because someone wrote that they were, the sooner we will discover (have ears to hear) the words of Love that can change our lives here and now.
