My personal rant on GOD and Religion!

John William Cornett

May each Human Being, or Human Becoming, know this well. Live in love. Love is the key. Love others as you would have others love you!

Some of us believe that each Human Being is potentially GOD manifest in the flesh! It's easy to become confused and mislead by superstitions, myths and outright fantasies. My favorite is the notion that "we are all sinners" and "you should be meek" and "serve your masters?" What does all that really mean? What does it mean to be "meek?" What does it mean to serve? When we love GOD and seek the truth with all our heart, mind, body and soul, then don't we naturally treat life, including our Human brothers and sisters, with love and respect?

Does anyone really believe that practicing and spreading religious doctrine, dogmas and the politics of division will automatically make one worthy of GOD's good graces? Can we honesty justify the vicious murder and carnage of millions of people in the name of GOD and religion? I'm certain that no one has a truly legitimate cause or reason to kill or deliberatly harm any one of our Human brothers or sisters for not believing exactly as we do? As "free-willed" souls, we often act in defiance or self-determination and dissent from that which we find to be contrived, unjust or corrupt. Why would any one of us ever want to kill another or force them to convert to a belief system that is perfectly in line what we believe? I cannot imagine why anyone would naturally aspire to be subject or slave to the whims of another one of our brothers and sisters or some government or corporate entity? From my perspective, and years of serious investigation of the TRUTH, it appears that more people are choosing to live in "love and service" to Humanity, (everyone) regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, region, nationality, language or color of skin, or anything else that might appear to seperate us. I believe that there is no such a thing as a pure race, except for those who've truly evolved as absolutely peaceful. We make choices to serve others when and where we "feel" a calling to serve. I believe that the greatest gift we can give to each other on this sacred Planet is to speak and seek the truth while being of "love and service" and assistance to each other, always! I believe that when I seek and speak the truth, then I am, at least in part, the living manifestation of the spirit of the CHRIST (the truth, the way) and GOD will reside within me and GOD'S voice will be the TRUTH.

I was going to stop here, but feel driven to make a statement. There's an ocean of mis-information on God and religion and no shortage of men in suits or robes speaking (often out of context) about the written word, often debating god and religion on every corner of our planet. We all know well that the subject of god and religion is extremely controversial and people actually "KILL" each other by the millons over it. Whyis that? Isn't it really just about power and control?

Try to imagine what our leaders are thinking when they hear or read the reports (and they do) that genocide is taking place, right now. Do they respond quick enough? What will we or our leaders do when mass killing starts on yours or my street or in your city? Will the response time depend on our religion or belief system? Will catholics and protestants actually "turn the other cheek" and seek peaceful solutions? What happens to love during war? Where does forgiveness go? Does compassion and empathy suddenly become null and void or suspended when we're asked to kill? Who among us has the divine right to ask another man or woman to kill a Human Being whom you've never met until you slaughter him/her, all before being properly introduced?

So what is the real meaning of "meek" as it pertains to Human Beings. I've heard it best expressed as "the knowledge that we have the power to destroy the world but instead have the innate knowledge and collective conscious and same heart to protect and nurture life on this planet instead."

Does GOD actually put men and women in power who will have us kill each other to make a point? I think not! It is a choice each Human Being makes. I choose peace! What do you choose? Do we really care that Human Beings around the world are starving, or sick and suffering while the military industrial complex prepares us for yet another war "only" to make more and more profits to further their causes?

So what's the answer to the question "what is really real where GOD and religion is concerned?" Are the Christians right? Are the Muslims right? Maybe the Jews, the Hindus, the Mormons or the Jehovah's Witnesses have the keys to the hidden truths. I don't know and, frankly Scarlet, I don't give a damn and really don't care which religion knows what! The mighty, powerful Catholic church opposing the Protestants, each willing to slaughter the other to preserve a belief system or ideology that is allegedly of GOD. Is it? Take a look at the history. The real history is that which religion and government DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW! What about those atheist and agnostics? Do those lacking in religious indoctrination deserve an honorable mention here?
Just where does "LOVE" fit in all the religion maddness?

Isn't love and acceptance what we really want? Don't we all desire to be loved and accepted.
Are you loved and accepted? Do we love and accept ourselves and each other? The answer you get probably depends on who you ask. It's so easy to get confused and remain confused. We live in an environment of constant bombarbment of insidious programming. The programming content is extremely confusing and often conflicting. Many of us are becoming aware of the programming by mass media which is often intended as a distracton from the truth, a distraction to living in love and seeking PEACE and TRUTH. It's increasingly more difficult to filter through all that noise to arrive at the TRUTH. I think we are all still very confused and distracted from what is real, except for remnants of that perfect love and absolute truth emanating through the Human Spirit. We might all do well to listen to the small but powerful voice hidden deep in our soul. It's probably the voice of GOD saying "WAKE UP!"

This section Time For Healing is, without doubt, an extremely controversial part on this website. When discussing matters of deep faith and "programming," it's understandable that there is still lots of confusion and conflict. Confusion and conflict will probably continue as long we neglect our duty to seek the truth and as long as there is money to be made and power gained by creating more divisive controls and selling religion as a means for comfort. In order to market religion, it's vital to compare one against the another. Maybe someday soon the "sheeple" will collectively agree to rise above all those endless questions and divisive rants about GOD and religion. Dare we ask, "does it "really matter?" Isn't the GOD and religion debate really a discusion for those who already buy into the "I'm right and you're wrong" argument which still divides us? I believe we are on the right track when we reject the debate of who's idea of GOD is more accurate.

I reject the debate! So what is next?

Now is the time to "get over" the debate.

It's time to begin, in a simply and loving way, to turn away from the trappings of the religion debate. Recognize the distortions of the truth. Investigate the truth away from corporate controlled mass media outlets. It's really easy to love, respect and forgive each of our brothers and sisters on this planet and start treating each other as equals. The love and respect we give each other applies just as much to those still consumed by the trappings of the GOD and religion debate. I believe that there is a true, living GOD. I believe that GOD's spirit resides deep in the heart of each Human Being and is the manifestation of the true GOD or "TETRAGRAMATON" throughout all existence in our Universe.

I believe that the sooner we drop the notion of creating wider dividing lines and fighting amongst ourselves and begin loving and respecting each other as equals, then the sooner other intelligent entities in our Galaxy might invite us to come out and play. Until then, I'm guessing that Earth Beings will be viewed as a developing species and still spititually blind, animal-like creatures enamoured by war and destruction. Maybe someday we'll actually learn to live in real PEACE. Someday we will all know that each one of us is integral to the whole and that no one is better and none any worse than the next. When we, the people, decide to become consciously, dynamically connected, then I believe we'll become worthy of integrating with and co-existing with our PEACEFUL and benevolent "Gallactic" neighbors. I believe the time has come to begin by accepting each other as unique and important to the whole. I believe we will learn to live in PEACE and HARMONY through love and repsect we discover for each other as the physical manifestation of love that our DESIGNER/CREATOR (GOD) made us to be. That infinite potential for love, peace and harmony resides in every Human heart and mind on this planet and needs to be awakened.

It's also time to awaken to the stark reality that we are being lied to at every turn soley for the sake of greed, power and control. I'm actually very happy knowing that, as I write these words, millions of Human Beings are being called into action to carry the almost forgotten message of peace and harmony to the collective conscious, while rejecting religious debate along with it's continuous half-truths, dogmas, lies and deceits which continue to divide us in the old paradigm. Now is the time for the truth. Now is the time for change. It will happen!


When I hear the truth, I am humbled by it. Hearing the truth induces a deep sense of calm and peace and my heart pounds from the sympathetic harmonies of having received the truth. Naturally, I like to share my experience and hope that others might feel and know the feeling of peace and calm amidst chaos. Empathy and compassion is what makes us Human. I found some interesting words in a section of a Bible... I consider these words to be absolute truth. The words are in 1 Peter, Ch3, verses 8 through 12. I believe this passage serves as the ancient royal order to LOVE. If you dare, take time to read and reflect on the truth of that particular message in the Christian Bible. It resonates strongly with me and I'll bet in the heart and soul of every Human Being that actually reads it. We can all look to that infinite spirit of love and absolute truth as the brilliant light on the path to GOD and our HIGHER SELVES. We are all be born of and consciously connected to the TETRAGRAMATON and LOVE itself. GOD resides in us and everywhere in the Universe.

This is the only truth that I need to know. "Love and nurture each other," including the least of us.


I recall from the many who have said before me: Forgive those who despise or hate you, for they know not what they do! Let go of the necessity to control the thinking of others and allow GOD to take care of those who seek evil, through lies and deceptions for gain. They too are only trying to make their way through life the best they can and it may be all they know to do. We are all still learning how to care for each other and our sacred Planet Earth. This Planet belongs to each and every one of us or NONE of us. It is certainly NOT the property of a few rich and powerful people, nor does this planet belong to governments or corporations or religions.

Our most sacred undertaking as Human Beings may be to respect each other as a brother or sister while celebrating our individual uniqueness though expressions of love and acceptance. We would all do exceedingly well to research on and focus on absolute truth each and every second of every day. You know what they say about the truth.

Yours in the spirit of Truth and
