Azrael responds to questions regarding the nature of spirit and soul, faith and science,
and the Song of God as it relates to an individual’s spiritual pursuit.
“In the spiritual life, you’re always at the beginning.”
There is such a thing as spiritual methodology, and it doesn’t involve checking your
brain at the door. While there are limitations to critical thinking, such tools need
not be abandoned in the spiritual pursuit.
Azrael explores the differences between scientific and metaphysical methods.
Is String Theory science or philosophy?
“Not everything that is real is provable.”
The spiritual pursuit involves the search for Self. Every person will have a unique
framework for spirituality. What works for you might not work for someone else. The
Song of God can be applied to any framework.
Azrael avoids ruling ex cathedra unless someone is misinterpreting the Song of God
to promote a harmful doctrine, ie: racism.
WHAT COLOR IS GOD?
The book is called the Song of God because God is singing to the individual reader.
It contains as many songs as there are people. The Song of God will sing to you regardless
of where you’re at in your spiritual journey.
For faith to be real and acceptable to God, then such a faith must always acknowledge
the believer’s right to walk away from that faith without any judgment or condemnation
from God, or from God’s appointed church (see Basic Beliefs: #13).
A faith without choice isn’t faith, it’s conformity. It’s tyranny.
Believe because you choose to, not because you must.
Believe because you want to. Not because you have to.
