Who does it claim to be?
In absolute terms, and what does it mean to be "living in the presence of God"?
God is not tyrannical, benevolent or vengeful, and does not exhibit petty human characteristics such as jealousy, caprice or anger.
God does not need or desire to be worshipped or to receive offerings, and is most certainly not influenced by flattery or praise.
God is neither demanding, vengeful or vindictive, and does not rule the Universe from high places as if He/She were a monarchy with the human race as subjects, casting down judgements and punishments at will for perceived transgressions.
We are all "God", perpetually living in the presence of God. God never punishes Him/Herself because it is through us, as expressions of God, that God continues to evolve through our individuated experiences however "good", "evil" or indifferent they might be.
God does not punish people for failing to believe in Him/Her, for failing to attend a church or failing to accept "Jesus" as their "saviour".
God does not in any way require intermediaries or "go betweens" to be positioned in the physical world between Him/Herself and "common man" in order to interpret, represent and convey the "will" of God. No such intermediary has, has ever had or ever can or will have the ear of God, or indeed possess any other sort of special connections or relationship with God.
No such self-appointed representative of God can possibly know "God's will" or accordingly convey such "will" to the people, and neither can such intermediaries convey the wishes of the people back to God. As aspects of God, in the Mind of God, God already knows our every wish, need and desire the very moment we think it.
Everyone is a totally equal and integral aspect of God, living in the presence of God, the Supreme Universal Consciousness, The Source, The Prime Creator, The First Cause, Who in turn is the same absolute, total and complete perfection every single human being is striving to achieve during the course of the journey of evolution along the Divine path back to God from whence we all originated, of Whom we are all an integral and equal aspect and to Whom we are all destined to return.
Note: Atman is individual consciousness, the Microcosm and Brahman is Universal consciousness, the Macrocosm
