Yes, very much so. In fact this is a major problem on the planet as well. By the way there were times in history when people believed God was female only and not male. We went through these cycles historically where the female was viewed to be god, and if you talked about God it was always as “God our mother” and never a father. And mankind has been through these cycles periodically where we believe God’s the mother, and then there was a rejection of that, and then there was an acceptance of God being the father. And then there was a rejection of that and then there was acceptance of God being mother, but never both masculine and feminine at the same time. And as a result of that there have been periods of time in humanity where women completely dominated the planet. They were involved in all aspects of politics, all aspects of religion and men were not allowed to be involved in those things. And then of course there was this backlash by men as a result of that unbalance and then men used their strength and their will to overcome those belief systems. So we now have a male dominated society, but historically we’ve gone through cycles, where women have dominated, men have dominated, women have dominated, men have dominated, and there’s been no equality through these cycles. And in fact if you look at some of the religious artefacts that you can see through archaeology, you can see how much women were revered in historical terms through history, but not so much now. So if you look at all the deities that are involved in religions now, it’s only the Hindu religion really as a major religion that believes in feminine deities. For the Christian religion it’s all masculine deities and for the Muslim religion it’s all masculine deities. And all of these are because of the general swing in the population as to who they accept God to be. Historically there are many artefacts
that archaeologists have found that prove that there were feminine deities in many religions on the planet and in fact some different races on the planet had only feminine deities; no masculine deities at all. And these were cycles that the planet went through in terms of their viewpoint of God.
So if you add up all of these problems, you can see that the biggest issues we have are with God generally. So when we start talking about a relationship with God, everyone’s going, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay, okay.” and there’s not much of a connection to it because there are just so many obstacles that we have within us that we’ve got to get over before we contemplate having a relationship with God. And the obstacles are pretty major obstacles. Fears and superstitions about God’s nature In addition to that, because we believe God is a punishing God, most people have the belief within themselves that we’re not allowed to experience anger with God. And in fact most people are petrified of actually expressing anger and rage towards God, and so they never do. They never even get below their addictions with God as a result. Remember anger is always a result of some addiction. So if we have rage with God but can’t even express it, and we are in complete denial of the rage that we have towards God, then it’s going to be very, very difficult for us to ever find the
addiction we have with God, for example addictions about what we expect God to do for us, as to why we get so angry
with God. It’s almost like we have this deep superstition inside of us that maybe God is like that. There’s this underlying feeling in most of society of superstition where they are a bit superstitious of God and therefore they don’t see God as a loving God, but somebody who’s going to require something of them at some point, and they’ve got to just be careful with their life. It’s interesting that when you talk to even the most confirmed atheist there are often these underlying feelings of superstition, which are in them that, are part of mankind’s history.
This superstitious nature that we have with God has caused us to do all sorts of very, very damaging things with God. For example, the whole concept that is presented in the Old Testament of the Bible that the Israelite race were allowed to destroy other races was all based on superstition about an angry God. So when another race sacrificed their children to God, the Israelite race condemned that and they decided that they were going to be God’s sword of correction for that other race. And the Israelite race, as they proceeded through what they called the “promised land”, they eventually murdered whole races; fathers, mothers, children, and totally destroyed the race through their superstitions that they had with God. And I find it interesting that a lot of Christian principles are based on that kind of treatment of other people. So when you look at all of the different injuries and emotional feelings that we have with God, it’s pretty
