Just a thought for 9/11. A close friend recently sent me a link to the video many of you may have seen. The video is nicely narrated and portrays “the Voice of God” speaking to us about 9/11.
It occurs to me that one of the big challenges in our world today is the number of people (mere human beings) who claim to speak for God. Although many messages are meant to be totally positive and inspirational, if we’re not careful we can fall into the trap that anyone can speak for God. It’s only another step in the wrong direction and we have self-anointed zealots telling us that God wants us to burn the symbol of someone else’s faith or worse, kill someone who doesn’t hear “the word of God.”
For myself, I’ve come to be quite suspicious of anyone or anything claiming to have the authority to speak for the One, All-Knowing, All-Seeing, All-Loving Good. I simply prefer to get those messages directly from the Source. They are there if we choose to listen. That, I believe.
