There are countries and systems that tell the world that they are based on God. They even go to the extent of printing words like ‘in God we trust’ on their documents and office walls. The question is not if they mean this or not. No, the question is, do they really understand what this means? Let us take a look at couple examples.
In a court of law or in any other social system (perhaps even the main stream religious systems) if I say that I did certain thing because God told me to do so, or if I say that tell certain thing because God told me so, do you think they will take my word? No, they will ask me to explain how God spoke to me. The questions may be along these lines. “Did God come to you personally and talk to you, just like I am talking to you now?”, “Could you hear the words God was speaking?”, “Did he speak in English”, etc, etc. If the system really believed in God, would they not know that God is a very personal experience. Only the experiencer can and will know it and cannot, by any means, explain it to another. Explaining God to another is like explain a person who has never eaten a custard-apple it’s taste and texture. Second hand knowledge cannot explain the real experience.
Let’s look ar another example: In a court of law or in any other social system, if I say that I did certain thing or took a course of action based on my intuition, they are very likely to ask, “what led you to make that decision”. Now, if they really trust in God, as they say they do, would they not know that intuition, unlike logic does not have a decision tree. Intuition is an instantaneous message that is relayed. There is no logic to it. It comes from one’s higher self.
How then does the system ‘really’, trust in God? Are they only saying so to fool people?
