The truths you claim might very well be Christian dogma and doctrine, packaged in a different form, which you say is loving but might not be when looked at under a microscope.
But maybe "the truth" is vastly so removed from your version of Christianity that it wouldn't be recognized.
I realise you cant read printed books, but I have a great many pdfs and E-Books of books listed that are not from "our sources." I don't think there is a single belief, or if there is, there would not be many, that I hold, that I have not discovered to exist in totally different sources. One of the reasons why I am so confident of what I say, is that its found in so many places. And yes you will find channelings from Yoganda, Sri Yukestwar and others here. But I agree the channeled messages I list here are essentially "Divine Love" sourced. Thats quite deliberate. This is a Divine Love site.
But Sandy has on her site, also several thousand messages, and from beings you never heard of, like ABC22, MNO8 or a Life Carrier, or a "Mentor" and so on. And yet Sandy and I have almost no difference in beliefs. We sometimes use different words, but our understanding is pretty much identical. You can find some of those channelings here: http://board.1111angels.com/viewforum.php?f=2
My list of books is here: http://new-birth.net/books.htm
One of the most substantial sources of spiritual information is the Urantia Book which I hold in high regard, but I don't hold it quite as highly as Padgett. (Sandy has the opposite view) I have compared the two books. The Urantia Book is 2000 pages of very fine print and takes at least three months to read. But in the end, its got the same story to tell as Padgett. Here is my comparison.
I think you are inferring here that I have tunnel vision. Nothing could be further from the Truth.

They'd be coming at it from a Pagan perspective, you from a Christian one. Love might not be the be-all-end-all for them, but Christians seem to be preachy about love, for some reason.
There are indeed messages from people who dispute the message of Divine Love, or are decidedly non-christian.
And here is an ancient Greek: Aeschylus
And an Egyptian: Hakan
Then Emerson 100 years later has not changed his mind about Divine Love
and neither has the Buddha
Its actually rather funny you criticise my site for being too Christian, and a whole bunch of fundamentalist Padgett folks criticise it for having too much foreign stuff. You cant please some folks, thats for sure.
