WHAT GOD WANTS by Neale Donald Walsch ... Is this book Dangerous?
How long has it been since you've read a dangerous book? You'll be in and out of this one in very little time. It's a short book. So it's not only dangerous, it's fast.
Fast and dangerous. That's often a fascinating combination. Maybe even a little exciting. Danger and excitement are two sides of the same coin. Which of the two you experience depends on whether you're racing toward something or away from it.
The greatest interest of humanity is life. This is the greatest interest of God as well, but some people claim otherwise. They imagine that God has a greater interest than human life—and that is what allows them to waste it with impunity. That is what allows them to fly airplanes into buildings shouting "Allah is great!" or drop bombs on the heads of innocent civilians, paid for with money on which is imprinted In God We Trust.
Yet the moral certitude that comes from so many of humanity's theological theories falls apart in the face of this three-word message: GOD WANTS NOTHING.
That's why this book is so dangerous.
Now here's the most dangerous chapter of this book. You might have thought it was chapter 13, but this is the real zinger here. This is the part that some people of power don't want you to read, because they know you'll get all excited about it, and that'll be the beginning of the end of their game. We're going to take a look now at those same categories we explored earlier, only through the prism of our new understanding of What God Wants.
For centuries we have been seeking to create Peace on Earth, Goodwill to All. I believe that we may still be able to do that. Time is short, yes. We're running out of runway, yes. Our environment may not hold out the way we are treating it, and our technology^which is giving us the ability to use "dirty bombs" and other weapons of mass destruction, including chemical and biological weapons— is running way ahead of our spiritual development. Still, I remain optimistic. I think we can do it. I think we can make the Christmas card come true.
What does God want, if He/She/It/They/We is truly All-There-Is?
Come to find out how simple life can be!
