Message from God: book 1/137
I am simply engaging the issue. And the issue is not “fundamentalist Christianity,” as you put it. It is the entire nature of God, and of God’s relationship to man.
The question comes up here because we were discussing the matter of obligations, in relationships and in life itself.
You cannot believe in an obligation-less relationship because you cannot accept who and what you really are. You call a life of complete freedom “spiritual anarchy.” I call it God’s great promise.
It is only within the context of this promise that God’s great plan can be completed.
You have no obligation in relationship. You have only opportunity.
Opportunity, not obligation, is the cornerstone of religion, the basis of all spirituality. So long as you see it the other way around, you will have missed the point.
Relationship, your relationship to all things, was created as your perfect tool in the work of the soul. That is why all human relationships are sacred ground. It is why every personal relationship is holy.
In this, many churches have it right. Marriage is a sacrament; but not because of its sacred obligations; rather, because of its unequalled opportunity.
Never do anything in relationship out of a sense of obligation. Do whatever you do out of a sense of the glorious opportunity your relationship affords you to decide, and to be, Who You Really Are.
