It doesn't matter what your perception of God is, as long as you have a perception. Belief in a higher power and living according to some kind of moral code can make us all better people in the end. Imagine how it would affect our world if everyone lived this way. Imagine if we dropped all of our fears, hatred and judgments of one another and just lived lives of peace and harmony. Man rises no higher than his perception of God.... Perhaps today we should all think of getting a higher perception.
