How strange I have found it to be with so many believers, that whilst they believe in the Spirit of God, they seem to have little faith in its actual existence.
For example, if you mention to a religious person the concept of Metaphysics and the mechanics of energy, you might be accused of practising Satanism! Truly an amazing theology and philosophy I stumbled across totally by accident. I had no idea until recently that people who profess to believe in God actually, on the other hand, deny that God exists. I find this philosophy almost incomprehensible given that spirit and energy are actually one and the same. Especially since religion as a whole believes in Spirituality or Spiritual Energy, the Being of God.
So, when I began conversing with a Christian Counsellor, much to my horror I made this amazing discovery when I mentioned I believe God is an energy Being full of light as Jesus is. To this day I am still scratching my head in wonderment at what seems to be in religious circles a shared and common belief of God. Thus, I began to probe further into the matter in asking her then; well then, what is God. She replied as I had expected in saying; God is a spiritual Being. Then I asked; please tell me is not a spiritual Being made of energy matter? She begged to differ! Given my profound negated experience with her, also a representative of a popular western Church, I began having serious doubt of her over-all credibility.
How can one who believes God is a Spiritual Being deny that of the material form is Energy Matter? Like all things in life, energy comes before the scientific matter, thus rendering a Spirit and the energy it has sealed within it. God had even declared this in the Holy Bible in Romans 8:11 clearly stating the Spirit (energy), of God lives within the mortal body. How is it possible then that religious people can deny the movement and influence of this energy they believe in and worship and yet simultaneously seem to deny at a scientific level. It appears devout Christians for the most part are willing to accept nature science, but not human science with regard to the spirit or energy that keeps them alive? Truly, I am in total awe and perplexity at how they can possibly even consider such a thesis!
I have studied Metaphysics now for almost 25 years on and off, however, it is only the last few years I decided to begin my Christian Challenges (unofficial Ministries), out in the world. Much to my horror and amazement I found those I expected to know the energy of God, actually denied its very existence. It seems obvious as God had said; they do not know me; how true I found this statement among the so-called believers. Yet, on the other hand they teach that God is a spirit, seemingly oblivious to the scientific processes and procedures God installs and utilizes within the human mind and body. In doing so, this gives God, the Spirit or energy, the ability to communicate in whatever form He so chooses with every living and non-living matter throughout the universe. How true this statement is - Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind. Ė by Albert Einstein.
I do not believe Metaphysics is part of the New Age but rather a revival of the ancient teachings that through Jesus Christ, Godís Son, He had left us with to learn. According to the Bible, without the energy or sprit of God to breathe life into all things the universe as we know it would not exist, thus neither would we. How religious doctrines can divide science from God, the theory of human relativity over-all, is quite astounding to say the least.
