How many Gods are there?  At first thought, you would think “that’s a dumb question, there’s only one God” and you would be partially correct…there is only one God…but…the question is not dumb.  You see, God has put life together differently than many people think.  Yes, there is one God…but…there are twoPowers.”

 

The first Power is God.  This other Power, the “Second Power,” was created by God.  God is alive.  The “Second Power” is not alive, though it may appear to be alive.  The Second Power is known by many names and people’s ideas of what it is vary from person to person.  The names that people give it give us an idea of their mental pictures of the Second Power.  Here are some names by which it is known:

 

Life

Nature

The Universe

Experience

Existence

The World

Sanity

Adulthood

Common Sense

 

There are many other names for the Second Power.  What is important that you know about the Second Power is this:

 

God rarely stops it from doing what it does.

 

So, yes, there is one God…but…there are two Powers.

 

Now, why is it important that you know there are two Powers?  Very simply:

 

You have two, not one, Power…that you must obey.

 

Interestingly enough, God may let you get away with disobeying him…for a time…but:

 

God virtually never let’s you get away with disobeying the Second Power.

 

Well, what does the Second Power demand of us?  It demands that we:

 

Obey the laws of nature and the laws of probability.

 

There are many laws of nature.  For example, there is the law that says “if you don’t eat, you will eventually die.”  There are many laws of probability.  For example, there is the law that says “if you play the lottery only once, you probably will never win the lottery.”

 

The L. F. Nexus will be posting the “Laws of the Second Power” on this website.  You are already familiar with many of these laws…but…there are many of these laws that you have never heard.
