‘ Not in My Name’ : An Interview with the Almighty


God depictions come in all shapes and colors, according to the race painting its image. Here’s the “White” God of Europeans, an image whose implications few question in the West.

As a writer who adheres to the spiritual laws ( most of the time anyhow ) the Almighty agreed to an interview. It, or he or she, or whatever you wish to label the Almighty, wanted someone as interviewer who was not well known in the media. Thus, yours truly. I hope Oliver Stone is not too disappointed. He would have made this into another great documentary.

Me: So, with what you see from your perch in the heavens, how are we down here doing?

Almighty: Not well at all. You have religions that claim to speak for me and then participate in or encourage bloodshed and vengeance, or even worse. Then you have their followers who remain silent to such actions. I watch Muslims who take the time to pray to Allah several times daily and then celebrate beheadings and suicide bombings… all in the name of Allah… which to them is ME. Jews from Israel and those who support them in the USA treat the Palestinians basically in the same manner as the Nazis did to their recent ancestors. Such a holy place as Jerusalem has forgotten what those three religions preached two thousand years ago and beyond that. How about the many so  called Christians who follow HE who was ordained as my son, and even worship him as Almighty? What they condoned and approved regarding America’s attacks upon the Middle East is to us in heaven nothing short of sin. While I am on the subject of sin, the sin of torturing another child of mine or destroying their country for reasons of empire and private profit… terrible. Or the Hindus who run India that exploit their own people and still have the caste system that the Mahatma railed against. Of course, they  recently renamed it ‘ free market democracy’… outrageous! Need I go on?

Me: No, I get your points. What about the governments in most of the countries of the world?

Almighty:  Show me even one where the rights of man come before those of power and profit? Show me one of any of the major industrialized nations where either their recent history or present agenda is not one of imperialism? Whether it be an outright dictatorship, or quasi one, or so called democracy, the few in each country control the economics and the politics of the many. But, I gave you all free will, so I can only await.

Me: Await what? Is it Armageddon?

Almighty ( laughing ) Remember what Jesus and many of the mystics of all religions spoke about? The Christians remember it as ‘ As ye sow so shall ye reap ‘ . The Hindus and Buddhists and other Eastern religions refer to it as Karma. It is a universal law… MY law. And so many do not either care or refuse to accept it. They will.

Me: Is there hope for us at all? Or are we so far gone down this road of ruin?

Almighty: Well, since you are from the West and especially the USA, I will concentrate on things from that viewpoint, OK?  Just in the past few decades you allow men to lead you who are false witnesses to the truth. From Mr. ” I feel your pain” to Mr. ” Unite not divide ” , to ” Mr. ‘ Hope and Change” to now ” Make America Great Again “, these men were as insincere as the Pharisees. It is up to those of you who ‘ see the light ‘ of truth and forgiveness and yes, even justice, to inspire the others of your kind to move in a better direction. It is written in the Bible, which so many of your people hold so dear:  “Let justice prevail or may the heavens fall.” It seems that each of your presidents and most of your public servants, throughout the brief history of your nation, have always ceded to the wishes of the wealthy and powerful few over the needs of the many. Even your so called ‘ founding fathers ‘ were very wealthy men who trusted not the lower classes or even the so called ‘ middle classes ‘with the chance to lead your nation. This cycle has continued for these 200+ years. One of our favorites within my domain was Frederick Douglass who eloquently stated:

“Power concedes nothing without demand. It never has. It never will.”

Sadly, even for us from beyond your veil of dreams, so few of your fellows understand the power and the energy of the many. As in the story so many Christians love to recall, when the body of Jesus lay in the crypt and the Pharisees sent armed guards to get it, a slew of what you refer to as angels surrounded them in greatest numbers, with no need for weapons, and the guards ran off.

Well, I have to cut this interview short. I have to meet with Lucifer and go over his report on the free will of  those from your plane. He has done great work for me by giving choices for you all to decide upon. Without him things would sure be boring for me (laughing ). Keep the faith… if you still have it… and keep up the good writings.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.
