The Secret – When You Can Walk On Water , Take The Boat ( Part 23 )
Even I have a god with whom I was vaguely acquainted.I had learned in Sunday school that He lived in a place called heaven. He seemed so far removed from everyone and everything that only popes and priests, pastors and preachers, kings, emperors and presidents had access to Him. One would lift beseeching hands and cry in pain to this god ,but most times, no answer.I thought Id throw a curve at Gideon.
Hey,Gideon, you know so much. Tell me about God. Who and what is He? Why doesnt He hear when people cry to Him? Tell me if you can.
Without blinking an eye, Gideon answered,Your religions are like schools in different countries. They teach you basically the same thing but in different languages and in different ways. Some schools may stress art or history, while others may place more emphasis on chemistry or math. But theres a common thread in all of themthey lead to the same place, the Temple of Wisdom and Light. So God by any other name is still God. The cry of the ancient Hebrews, Hear, O Israel, the Lord thy God is One, is as true now as it was then, or ever will be.
