God is Nature! Jesus is a Mentor and Religion is his/her School

All religions must judge their own belief on Nurturing Nature! Nurturing God in Heaven in our Wonderful Universe!

Many people will be misled by mentors and their religion from time to time hence they change mentors and religions over-time to religions that seems more palatable!

But at the end of the day or in the 'grand scheme of things' God, is Nature!

How does your mentor relate to Nature or God?

If you're unhappy with the results then find a more meaningful mentor....

Religion is a mentor's teaching or school here on earth and God is our Wonderful Universe.

You only have to see how the lords pray works to understand Jesus and his teaching!

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory. for ever and ever. Amen


Did Christ want?

Christ nurtured nature in my book.

If Christ needed something in my book he would have needed you and me and everyone to Nurture Nature.

Just like cradling a baby in your arms.

If you nurture all things great and small then a cradle swings below us nurturing us as well.

Other than that example Christ in my book asks for nothing. Those who preach otherwise don't give you any other message from God!

And because people try to tell other people other things that God wants then that is why they fight about whose type of God they should follow!

Give them their religion and their God that is what supports our survival but lead them by example!


Spare the Rod?

We all know the phrase from the Bible that says spare the rod and spoil the child. Does this mean hitting them? Is there another meaning that is possible here? An advisor of mine whilst I was Children’s Commissioner in Tasmania, who was preparing for church ministry, said that her interpretation of the Bible allows us to consider these statements from a non violent perspective. She said that the rod in the Bible referred to the shepherd’s rod. This shepherd’s rod had a crook in it which was used to hook onto the sheep to prevent them from straying, to contain them. I then realized for myself, that the rod was not the staff that the shepherd also had, that I believe was used to beat off wolves and other predators. My own reflections also lead me to this conclusion, as my favourite Psalm, Psalm 23 states that the Lord is my shepherd and that His rod and staff will always guide me and be my comfort.

The rod is to steer me to paths of righteousness with the rod to protect me from harm. Neither of these were there to harm me, and this concept of a benign and loving God, who like a good shepherd was devoted and faithful in looking after his flock is commonplace in the Bible. I humbly and respectfully offer you this alternative way of viewing some Biblical statements as matters for your consideration, to show how it is possible to parent without any violence, but with guidance, care and love.

He said when God died he left a little bit of himself in everyone, now what do you want to be?

My answer 'a mentor'! Lead by example.....


We are one!
