Good to the Core!!! October 31 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My dearly cherished child,
I want you to think about the concept of “good.” You rightly say that I am good. That is absolutely true. I am good to the core. All good things come from Me. There is no bad, evil or darkness in Me.
Now I want you to consider this: can someone be “good” who punishes those who disagree with them, or who punishes those who don’t believe they are “right?” In many countries, the leaders have what they think is absolute power. They will do anything to stay in power and protect their position.
So when their citizens… or foreigners who are living in their country… disagree with them and don’t believe in their way of life, they punish them. The imprison them, they take away their rights. The confiscate their assets. Sometimes they torture them and even kill them and their relatives.
You correctly call that a violation of human rights. That’s obviously not good. That’s not acting or being good. You would never call those kinds of rulers good. Yet you have mistakenly believed that I am like that. You have believed the lie that, like a dictator, I have created an eternal torture chamber where I have planned in advance to supernaturally keep alive forever those who disagree with Me and don’t believe in Me just so that I can physically, emotionally and mentally torture them beyond belief forever. And at the same time you say, “God is good…all the time.”
Can you now see what a heinous misrepresentation of Me and My character that is! Reject that lie! Gently, lovingly and gracefully show others how that lie is a gross misrepresentation of Me, who I am and what I am all about.
Evil treats people like that. Not Me! I only love, forgive, give grace, accept and include. I never repay evil with evil. That’s who I am!
