而這些不就是一個「擁有自由之本質(essence of freedom)的人」所持有的特質嗎？
I have told you in this dialogue that the word "freedom" and the word "God" are interchangeable.
Neale: Well, yes, you have. But no major religion teaches that.
Do not your major religions teach that God is all powerful, all creative, all knowing, unlimited, and everywhere present?
Neale: Yes, I believe they do.
And are these not the characteristics of one who is the essence of freedom itself?
Neale: I never thought about it that way.
Well, isn't someone who is all powerful, all creative, all knowing, unlimited, and everywhere present, essentially totally free?
Neale: Yes, I suppose so.
Would not such a person be free to do whatever he or she wants, when he or she wants, where he or she wants, and have complete liberty to do so how he or she wants, and why he or she wants?
Then the way you have defined God is the way you wish to define yourselves. And in the future, you will simply admit that, rather than trying to hide it.
