Immediately following 9-11, I listened with interest as one of the T.V. news people questioned several of the leading Clergy. They each were asked why this tragedy had happened to us. The answer was, (We just don’t know, we have no idea.)
Somehow, I didn’t find that answer too much of a surprise. You see, I have spent this last number of years in pursuit of some of the big questions of life regarding our purpose for being here.
That quest for knowledge began in and at the place you would normally go to look for those answers, and that is to those who claim to have the answers. However, after a period of time, I began to see that the search was not producing any answers, only more questions.
I was to see that the religions of this world as they were being presented to the different societies was not producing the expected results, and was certainly not a proper reflection of a Designer– Creator of a superior power and intelligence.
My study then led me away from religions as we know and view them, while in search of those plaguing questions. It was then to my surprise, I found there was a distinct advantage to viewing things from a distance outside of, and away from the atmosphere and often narrow views that were produced through religions as they are presented to the different societies.
I have found that many people of the Christian faith hold the view, and are often taught that faith is all that is required to serve a God that is very far away, and one which we know very little about and understand his plan for Man even less. Then sooner or later, the terrible reality is that blind faith mixed primarily with emotion but without any real substance is not enough during a crises. That type of weak foundation eventually leads to a feeling that the creator has let them down.
We then have another Middle Eastern religion that is dedicated to the downfall and destruction of the rest of the religions, and that dedication mixed with an all consuming hate and a frenzied determination on their part for success is producing a very volatile and scary situation for mankind for the near future.
The problem goes all the way back to the days of Abraham in the bible and without a doubt, will be the major problem for this world in the days to come. There will be more on that later, but isn’t it interesting that both of these religions claim to be serving and looking toward the same God, and claim to have him planted firmly in their pocket, on their side, and to the exclusion of all others.
We watched following 9-11 as these people danced in the streets of their cities at the news of the death of hundreds of people, and even pray fervently to their god for the destruction of all who are not in agreement with them, and who are considered infidels. How so very sad!!!
In a world that is bursting at the seams with an explosion of knowledge, we find that a large part of that knowledge is quickly put to use in the destruction of, and or manipulation of other men and women. Why do we find these terrible inequities among mankind?
There indeed is an answer to these plaguing questions, and the intent is to make an attempt to address them from an entirely different direction, which will perhaps give the reader thoughts to ponder on in the days to come.
This book is being written primarily to the people who find themselves forced into an agnostic posture as a result of just not being able to be accepting of religions as they are being presented to the world. And also to those trying to be a part of religion, but deep within themselves, realize there is something terribly wrong with the picture being presented.
Then, there is the terrible realization that it becomes extremely hard to find any within those (hallowed) walls of religion who stand out as true examples to the society around them. As we look around us, we find a terrible amount of Fluff, but very little real Substance being portrayed, or produced.
This writer strongly feels there is a definite well thought out plan for all of mankind being worked out from above, and there is a very good reason for the present conditions we find in this world that seems to be unraveling at a fast rate brought on by evil influences.
So yes indeed, there not only is a grand design being worked out for mankind, but that plan is right on target, and will indeed come to fruition in the near future.
Now, for you who are wrapped up in your little security blanket of belief in your present religious convictions, you are sure to find yourself at odds with some things and directions presented here, and probably at times as we go through this presentation will be offended by the reasons given for our present problems along with the solutions to those problems being presented. There will also at times be language and phrases used that some of you will likely find offensive, and be ready to write me off as a lost cause, and be ready to delegate me to a hot fire below.
Please understand, the various points of interest that will be given contrary to your previous understanding of things will be given in brief just enough to cause you the reader to have a desire to do your own research into the various subjects with the hope you will be able to either prove or disprove to your own satisfaction the points made. It seems to be the proclivity of we human beings to have a deeper appreciation for new understandings of something if we have to put forth some effort in achieving it.
It would take volume’s to go into detail on all the things you will be reading in this book which you are going to find contrary to popular believes. However there are indeed answers to the big questions of life if we will just reach out for them with out a lot of preconceived ideas passed down to us, all designed to keep society in a state of confusion and turmoil.
For you in religious leadership positions, this writer feels a tremendous amount of empathy toward some of you, while for others, the feelings border on outright contempt for what you have pawned off on this society under the guise of religion.
I feel sure you will be forced to have to account for your actions at a later time, therefore whatever contradictions later presented by you to this presentation are of little importance to me.
In writing this book, as I proceeded with presenting the contents, I gradually became aware that even though it was heavily laden with facts, something was missing in the presentation. There was something needed to whet the appetite of the reader to hold interest in what was being presented.
For weeks, I wrestled with this quandary, and as the presentation was coming to a conclusion, one night I had a dream that seemed to go on throughout the night. Then the following night, there was a continuation of the dream which resulted in a total redirection of the book.
The story flow then is for most part a result of that dream, along with the addition of some of life’s personal experiences. That dream then resulted in a complete revamping of the contents, of which I am very pleased, and extremely grateful. Therefore, I have tried very hard to stay as close to that dream as memory will allow, even though in places I have given thought to softening things somewhat.
There will surely be some who will likely be highly offended by some statements and phrases used. However, after careful reflection, I have chosen to stay with the original presentation as I feel some things need to be given in a very graphic way in order to drive home the ugly wrong practices of some of those who lay claim to being ambassadors of God.
There is yet another aspect of this presentation that perhaps should be addressed. I am probably one of the most unqualified persons to undertake a venture of this sort, and I feel sure any one trained in journalism will quickly be able to see this. But perhaps there will be enough people of a particular mind set, who are searching and seeking for answers that will not let the flaws in the presentation deter them from doing their own research into the big answers to life.
It is my hope that as the reader proceeds with the reading of this book, Gabriel’s creditability will eventually have been established strongly enough in the readers mind to allow the reader to give serious consideration to what’s being presented with out too many mental road blocks getting in the way, and consideration allowed by you the reader for a new different approach outside of what is presently being presented by the modern day very flawed system called religion.
Respectively yours, John Kilough
