LIFEGUARD: InSearch of aPractical God.
Dr. Ramiro Torres, D.C., drtorres07@yahoo.com
Christian theology is very interesting in riding the fence of viewing God as both avengeful God and a loving God. This paradox adds into the anxiety and fear thatChristians and all of us hold to the ‘end of times’ debate. Our indecision of what andwho God is has created this irresoluble computation that has generated unproductivestress in our lives. This indecision is at the core of both the elusive peace, and our body’s decaying physiology. It is the anxiety to the ‘meaning of life’ question thatbecomes both meaningful and illogical.Therefore, current Christian theology becomes littered with all sorts of paradoxes,ironies, absurdities, and even blasphemies. We say that faith is both needed, yet bydefinition unable to be proven, and therefore irrational. We say that God is bothmerciful, but yet demands retribution (the idea of purgatory). We say that God isunconditional yet by our definition on what and who God is, we make Him conditional.We create quandaries by defining God in a nationalistic view that holds a definition of a‘better’ God or the ‘real’ God that stems forth the ‘I’m right and you are wrong’ theologythat spews forth 9/11 again and again.We say we believe in the teaching of Jesus Christ yet we do not practice his teachings.We say that we love Jesus Christ, yet we only hear and practice those teachings thatsuit us for what we want in life. Self-righteously we make ourselves deaf and blind. Wemake the practical into impractical and call these organized spiritual institutionsChristianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, and any other –ism that wecan dream up: Catholicism, Protestantism, Sunnism, Shaivism, Jainism, etc.Lifeguard: In Search of a Practical God, seeks to reconcile this deep seeded Christianparadox and in the process, rehabilitate the state of man into a higher conscious.Itseeks to make practical what others have termed impractical, lofty and esoteric. Itseeks to counsel and make real the idea that we are not only more than capable to livebetter, but that we can truly start to live.

God is everywhere and is in everything yet we do not see God because we do notbelieve in this reality. In fact, we all have given God a personality and face that is verylimited to who and what God really is. Lifeguard is the book that seeks to extract this
