When looking at "everything is one", one should note that "everything" is an infinite statement and not just subject to the limited view of one very infinitesimal part of the "whole".
How is a infinitesimal part a limited view in an infinite whole?
Because it is a part of the whole, not the whole in itself. So, a limited view.
If the universe is holographic, the whole is contained in every part.

Good question! I am also wondering who but "God" can apply "Godly knowledge".

What scares me is the part about accuracy. How does one know they have accurately discerned the difference between judgement of right vs. judgement of wrong, especially when various people claim to be on authority of God and come to different conclusions on what is right and wrong judgement?
I have the exact opposite view. I believe that God does not judge at all. That a God would give us free will but expect us to act as though we don't have free will, to not "sin," is untenable. Outside the human-constructed paradigms, such as ones including notions of sin, there is no ultimate paradigm where it is an absolute fact that something is right or wrong. That's not to say that murder of a human by a human, for example, should be tolerated. The humans have adopted some basic moral codes such as the golden rule and the principle of categorically maximizing total life and liberty for all. These principles serve humanity in an effort to minimize suffering caused by
humans. What worries me is when a person justifies their action, such as punishing the ones deemed to be in the wrong, based on what is thought to be a mandate from God.
