Leaning forward into the monitor, Gabriel states, "What better way to test beings on the sin of pride than to assess how vain gloriously certain they are that their way is the one and only way.   How lacking in logic and just plain silly is it to believe that in all his majesty God is limited to not testing his creations even in how they self-righteously interpret religion?

"And how incongruently silly is it to believe that one who creates all this needs or commands people to pray to him in front of statues.   Does God need your prayers to feel better?   To do whatever he chooses?  

"Or would God smile more to see you helping those creatures he made who are in need of earthly help?  

"Might God have created a perfect universe and let you evolve into it to see if your additions to it would make you worthy of doing whatever is next in it?

"What do you believe counts more on God's Report Card?  

"A Christian spending hours praying in front of a gold plated Crucifix or spending those hours working with ghetto kids or struggling farmers on activities, skills, education, and insight building that will allow them to evolve and build opportunities into their future?  

"A hardened Islamists praying five times a day for Jihad or one who works to rebuild his neighbors' homes destroyed by war?  

"A roaming monk who has peasants delivering their food to him as he sits in a cool shady cave carved by the poor during a hot summer or one working in the fields to better a subsistence peasant's life?

"With God, what do you think speaks louder?   Words, mumbled prayers, or actions?" Gabriel asks, and then continues.   "God's saying 'Doing good,' is much more important than talking about good deeds or praying that someone else do them.

"Yes, and God reminds you daily in his human design, but so many of you are so slow to learn from the obvious."

"In our 'human design'?" I ask about Gabriel's choice of words.

"We gave you at least eight parts   -- mind, ears, eyes, nose, arms, hands, legs, feet -- all designed to create, build, do.   We gave you another part, the mouth, to help move the doing forward.   But too many of you use the mouth to just talk. Repeatedly mumbling prayers without what you earthlings call "Walking the talk' under-utilizes your mouth. Such under-performance with one of God's gifts is lamentable."

"Yes, indeed lamentable." God interjected. "The religions you name on earth as Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, etc., they all have the right words for living heavenly lives on one of my many spinning jewels, but so many of you don't live the words that the pristine atmosphere I bestowed upon you deserves.

"Gabriel," God chuckles, "since this lad got through your vaunted encryption code thanks to an animal on earth transposed as a reference to me," God chuckles again and this time the cloud creates an image of not a muscular God but a jovial one with a beer belly and happy hands tapping on it in cadence with his words; "reward him by letting him chat with you whenever he wants.

"I'm going to beam around my universe now, young man"   Remember, "Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.  

"Try to get better at doing that and get more of your earthly friends, a lot more, involved in doing the same."
