Hello world!

January 10, 2015 - God Reveals His Will
Hello world!

When God Says, “Hello World”:

The only thing that truly makes a man great is when God chooses to appear to that man, chooses to speak to that man, or chooses to interact with us through that man.  God remains forever unknown, unless He chooses to reveal Himself to us.  Religion and church have no redeeming value whatsoever, unless God reveals Himself through that religion or church.  Religion and church attendance are pointless in the long run, unless they bring us to God and help us to find God for ourselves.

These realities have had a deep impact on my choice of religion and church.  If God is not there in a religion or a church actually interacting with the leaders and people of that church, then there’s really no reason for me to be there either.  The purpose of life is to find God.  If God isn’t attending a particular church, then why should I?  Why would anyone want to be a member of a church that doesn’t believe itself to be God’s own church or The True Church?

On this blog, I want to quote my most favorite instances where God has chosen to interact with man.



Sistine Chapel

As depicted in this Michelangelo picture from the Sistine Chapel, God revealed His Will during the creation of Adam.

I have noticed that whenever God interacts with man, He eventually provides witnesses. It’s impossible to have faith without some kind of foundational evidence to sustain that faith. If it is anything of great importance to mankind, God tries to provide witnesses and evidence of His presence or influence. Trust, but verify. God calls it His law of witnesses.

The amazing thing about Joseph Smith and Brigham Young is that whenever they were seeing God, angels, or visions or were hearing the voice of God, they had friends standing next to them who were seeing or hearing the same thing that they were seeing and hearing. It’s one thing to claim to have seen God or angels, but it’s at a whole other level to get God and angels to appear to or speak to your friends.

The true prophets are judged by the witnesses or the evidences that they are able to produce or provide. The pretenders always go it alone.

We derive no value whatsoever from choosing to follow a false prophet; but, choosing to follow a true prophet like Jesus Christ or Moses or Joseph Smith or Brigham Young can provide great dividends, because the true prophets are backed by God Himself.



The joke is not lost on me. Yes, Adam is also saying “Hello World” in this painting as well.

What is significant to me is that Michelangelo gave God an anthropomorphic look. In the painting, God has a finger with which to reach out and touch man.

Whatever gave Michelangelo such an inspired and novel idea? How would he have had the courage to paint such a thing?

By that point in time, the Catholic Church had been teaching the world for a thousand years that God is a shapeless fog without body, parts, or passions.

Either Michelangelo’s depiction of God is wrong, or the Catholic Church’s Nicene Creed is wrong. They both can’t be right.


In this picture, everyone focuses on the nakedness of Adam, and thus they don’t notice the true miracle. Michelangelo followed the scriptures and drew God in the image of a man. The scriptures tell us clearly that man was created in God’s image. The Catholic church did away with that concept in the Nicene creeds, but that doesn’t change the truth of the matter.

Genesis 1: 26-28:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

There on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo painted the truth. It was a truth that ran contrary to what the Catholic church had been teaching for a thousand years. I still wonder where he got the courage to do so.

This scripture also tells us that the Gods come in pairs, male and female. There are male Gods and there are female Goddesses in heaven. The truth is there and easy to see, for anyone who is willing to look and see.
