God Is Light
NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS

There are two ways to view the world. One is as a blind man sees. The other is with the eyes that see what is beyond what the enemy magician hides. It is by no accident that there has been more material progress in the United States during the 20th century than there was in the entire world, during all the previous centuries, combined. During the past 50 years life expectancy has increased by 30 years. Killer diseases, such as tuberculosis, polio, typhoid and pneumonia almost disappeared during the age of baby-boomers. Food that only the wealthy ate a century ago is today being eaten, daily by America's poor. Wages have quadrupled from $3.50 an hour to $12.00 per hour, on average in the last 50 years.
During the course of last century alone, the affordability of all goods has greatly increased. Most poor Americans make choices only the upper middle class made 80 years ago. Near 95 percent of every American household have no less than two telephones, electricity and a flushing toilet, all conveniences our grandparents were lucky to have. More than 70 percent of Americans own a car, a VCR, a microwave, air conditioning, cable TV, Googles daily and a washer and dryer. Such goods are common today, but were scarce a century ago. Dr. Julian Simon (deceased in 1998) was an economics professor at the University of Maryland and senior fellow at the Cato Institute. He studied and wrote, "America's 20th century was the greatest century of Human progress in history." While America's getting was better than good the God who delivered colonists from the clutching fingers of English mid-wives, is dying in the minds of more Americans every year.
The World Christian Encyclopedia documented in 2006 that "The status of faith is especially dire in the west, [Europe and America] where churches face an unprecedented crisis that threatens the existence of organized faith as a viable entity. There is surprisingly little that can be done to change the massive defections from Christianity that's taking place in Western Europe, due to secularism and in America, due to materialism. The number of non-religionists in the 20th century skyrocketed from 3.2 million in 1900, to 697 million in 1970 and on to 918 million in 2000." But the predicted defections are due to deeper causes than fat wallets, fat waistlines and full cupboards.
The great "falling away" is still occurring and will continue among a huge, unnumbered crowd that never really knew the real God. So few actually know or know of the real God that it's time to illuminate, just a bit as to whom we are talking about. Existence, all that is, was never a place. Existence is a living, active thinking but unseen Being. Existence forever existed. Existence exist now and will forever exist in the forever future. To make matters simple let's start at the beginning of our insight, since there actually never was a beginning of Existence.
Before anyone, anything or any place existed Existence, consisting of a single living, spherical, MEGA-MAGNIFICENT ATOMIC LIGHT existed then and now. Existence is a forever living fiery Sun many times larger and much more atomically intense than any light known to Humans. This One absolute Being is the whole of all-existence, alone. Remember, Existence is a massive, living BEING, who used His actual everywhere presence to replicate the Human form. This is a difficult concept for most. Let's use familiar icons to illustrate. Imagine, if you will that the entire Existence is the sum total of one HUGE INVISIBLE LIGHT that is the whole of Existence. Before the beginning of anything, less than 100,000 years ago, there were no people, animals, insects, no universe, planets of any kind anywhere. Before anyone, anything or any place existed a brightness that could think, see, hear, smell taste and feel existed and will forever exist.
