The Divine Mind
Jesus never condemned, but healed with forgiveness.
The divine mind is at rest, peaceful, 1
Not so human beings.
The divine mind has no thought of violence,
Humans have anger.
The divine mind is not jealous or cruel,
Humans envy and hurt.
The divine mind does not condemn or punish,
Condemnation is human, not divine.
Know the divine will never condemn or punish you.
All negativity is a projection of self, not the divine.
Decide to become more like the divine,
No criticism, punishment or guilt, at peace.
To state otherwise is blasphemy.
Decide to have a peaceful mind.
Can you take the Peace Testimony?
Do you renounce war and violence for any reason or under any pretext whatsoever?
Any story depicting God as violent does blaspheme.
Principles to live by
Set a high Ideal before setting goals.
Do to others as if they were a part of you, because they are.
Do not criticize, for as you criticize you hurt yourself.
Forgive others to remove your on hurt.
Positive thoughts bring about positive physical effects.
Realize everyone projects themselves onto others.
The Divine Mind is Not as Depicted in the Old Testament

EX 21:20-21 With the Lord's approval, a slave may be beaten to death with no punishment for the perpetrator as long as the slave doesn't die too quickly.
EX 32:27 "Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.
EX 32:27-29 With the Lord's approval, the Israelites slay 3000 men.
