All sacred texts express our human interpretation of that which we refer to as a higher power, highest consciousness, God, Source or The Universe. There is truth hidden within all sacred text. No matter what sacred text you choose to read you can learn about the nature of the Divine from it and, how our relationship to what we define as God has evolved throughout time.
As a young girl I was taught to revere God. To believe in God with an unwavering faith. To never question a word of the Holy Bible. To perform the necessary actions to feel the warm embrace from the divine Father. So with devotion, I studied the scripture, sang hymns and whispered daily prayers. In church my ears would soak up every utterance from the preacher’s mouth, waiting for the moment of God’s sweet presence to sweep over me.
