I awakened early this morning with a new insight about an old, very old misunderstanding, which had to do with a punishing, vindictive, merciless God of the Old Testament. My experience has proven to me that God our Father is Love. Each creation is an expression of our Creator’s love at the primal level. Life must share with life to have a being, sharing is love in action, so all is love. We could say; Love created loving beings out of love, for love, by love, energized by love to express love with other lovers. What else could we be if not love?

If the above is true then how could our/my Creator/Father be anything but love? In the Old Testament, there is a statement as I recall that goes something like; "Vengeance is mine says the Lord". Could a loving Father be vindictive, seeking revenge, demanding retribution or inflict punishment on His children/creation? I cannot, I will not accept that about Him, He would have to be a child abuser to be that kind of Being. This means that the word vengeance must have another meaning. I believe it simply means that any correction, healing or transformation must come from Him. My own experience shows me that our/my Father has transformed some of my defects into assets and for that I am truly grateful.


Do you believe that a loving Creator/Father could inflict punishment, demanding retribution from His children?

How does our Creator/Father correct us when we fall off the path?
