To seek to learn "God's View of Reality" is to assume that some of us are "wrong" and others of us are "right" in our perceptions of reality. Then our problem is to figure out which of us are right and which of us are wrong---and what to do with those who are wrong. In that venture, power politics is bound to play a central role. The people with the most power are likely to turn out to be "wrong". Thus the most powerful will turn out to be the "righteous" people and be the ones who learn "God's View of Reality" by eating of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The people who seek to know "God's View of Reality" are thus likely to want to know what God considers to be "good behavior" and what God considers to be "evil behavior". Such knowledge would be very useful in helping people to achieve the fulfillment which God intends for them. With that knowledge the righteous people could assist others in finding God's one way to life, and possibly encourage them a bit if they are disinclined to follow in the One Way---out of ignorance. Rewards may be offered to help people recognize God's Way---with the rewards withheld from those who do not accept the good news of God's Way. Some people may turn out to be so foolish as not to respond to any system of rewards, and for them a system of threatened punishments may help them get the message. Of course it would be unwise to threaten punishment and not ever carry through---so some people must be punished to make clear that the threats are not idle threats. To keep this fact clearly in people's minds there must be regular examples of cases when people fail to follow in God's Way. The necessary arrangements for that can easily be made. In these clever ways, people can help God do what He cannot do on His own. Since God has no hands but our hands to do His Will, it is important that we serve Him in helping our neighbors come to know and follow in His Way in keeping with His View of Reality. We must seek the One Correct Transcendent Perspective of Reality, and help others come to accept that One Transcendent Perspective which is THE TRUTH. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
