Understanding what is happening is about:
A STUDY OF RELIGIONS AND WHY HUMANITY NEEDS RELIGIONS
Welcome to our hub (27) Bible understanding necessary
May God guide me to say the right religious things in our religious articles?
Dear readers, we have to admit that understanding what is happening in the field of religions today is necessary, because we have reasons to believe that today religions seem to be less attractive to the public than they were in the past. In the past religions hat so much power and everybody was following religions willingly, today it is different and a lot of people start questioning our religious beliefs, we know that there are many reasons why this is happening, some of which can be explained easily, some other reasons may be a bit harder to explain; however there is this need to know and above all to explain to ourselves why this is happening, therefore, it would be a good thing if we look for those reasons that affect today religions, since we believe that religions are helpful in our lives. So, let us see what could be done.
In order to do something positive for all humanity, we need to discuss this religious situation openly; we need to do this with an open mind and there should not be anything left behind, everything should be looked at very closely, even those things that seem at first sight that they could never be wrong need to be looked at closely, just to see if there could be another meaning to our interpretation of religious books that we have been using and we use even today, perhaps a complete review of our religious beliefs is necessary and this is what we intend to start in our religious study here, therefore in this article we will start with these views in our mind.
In order to do that let us start with what sort of issues we need to talk about in this article: in this article we will be talking about: Understanding what is happening; then, Bible reviews are now necessary; Bible reviews about bible curses; and Praying God to shield us from curses. But let us first put our readers at ease with this paragraph that we have written for our reader’s peace of mind, because there are some people that would be worried to accept what we are writing here.
So, to anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs, please read our Prayers for Reconciliation and Reconciliation of the Universe religious writings fully before you pass judgment and quit reading; you see Prayers for Reconciliation is only an idealistic theory, which through discussions with other fellow believer (and perhaps non-believers) is trying to find a way on how to link all existing religions together, in the hope that one day they would not be able to fight each other any longer about religious issues. Reconciliation of the Universe is the theory that might be able to achieve just that.
For this reason, I am praying God to guide and help me say the right things in these religious writings.
Almighty and merciful Father, hear my prayer and help me, amen.
Now let us see what we would like to achieve;
THIS IS WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE
We will have to set the stage for the entire world to see.
And whoever will read these writings might have to agree,
That here we are trying to find a way to God for all humanity;
In order to stay in touch with God-life-force for eternity
And therefore, I am praying God to guide and help me.
My Lord God, I pray you with all my heart my soul and my mind earnestly, in the hope that you would guide and help me; Father hear my prayer, amen.
Prayers for Reconciliation, 27
Bible reviews are necessary
Looking at what is happening in the world of religions today, especially if we look at the Roman Catholic order and also all other religions that come from the Bible, one wonders what is wrong with religions today, as they seem less and less attractive to the people themselves; therefore some of these people start asking themselves, if the religion they are in is the right religion, for this reason they may change religion during their lives, or they may even leave religions all together and become atheists, but it can be worse, because some people are not satisfied with their own religion, so they change to another religion, just because they believe that the other religion makes more sense to them; this changing religions sometimes can be even dangerous, when some young people could be brain washed and made do something violent in the name of their new religion. You see, there are some religions that are still using the old religious ways, where religions were designed to keep a religious group together, therefore outsiders were not easily included and tolerated.
It is for these reasons above that we have already said many times in many ways; we have reasons to believe that we must find a way how to review the Bible and also other religious books, without offending religious people that belong to religions that have come from the Bible and other denominations, if we want the existing religious orders to work the way it is supposed to work. Of course how that could be done we do not know properly yet, but it needs to be done in the near future, in order to neutralize or make it less attractive for people to leave religions and become atheists; and there are also the extremists, which these days seem to be taking hold in the Muslim community and if they keep growing they will upset the present religious system of the world.
Perhaps we should abandon the views that the bible is laterally the word of God, as this does not help the situation and it does not make sense to the atheists in the first place, it also gives rise to extremism because some believers may easily make believe or may be led to believe that they are doing God’s will from their religious leaders. Therefore, if we admit that the Bible is man-made, then it can be reviewed without causing any harm to the religious community at large.
So, let us start from this hub that I am editing now which talks about Bible curses: You see what we are going to try here is to study the Bible closely and see what makes sense and what does not make sense, using our own logic human reasoning, and when we find that it is not exactly the way that it has been explain to us from our elders, then we should find why it does not; and when necessary we need to express our own meaning, so that a better interpretation would be available to the believers. Now let us start with, Bible reviews about Bible curses.
The Bible religious history book
About Bible reviews
We all know, that one of the oldest and the most read book in the world is the Bible, but the Bible is also one of the most difficult books to understand properly, because it can mean different things to different people. But our religious leaders have thought us that as believers we are supposed to believe everything it says even when it does not make sense to our logic human reasoning, because it is the word of God: So when we require some explanation our religious leaders will explain it the way they see it and there is no other way about it, in other words we should believe whatever they say, which happens to be the way they have been told to believe from their previous leaders whether it is right or wrong.
Here we have to say that some of us have reasons to believe that they might be making a mistake, because they do not allow us to discuss those religious issues openly; they also do not see that scriber of those days had to write in such a way, in order to control the people of that community they belonged to, it was also written to keep that group of people together, and that was the main reason why the Bible was written. We could say that, it is for these reasons that the Bible starts in a very strong way and does not give the readers any chance even to ask anyone, if what is written there can be right or not; as it starts very strong like this:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. For a believer this means that God is so powerful that can create everything he wants. But the question is here, can God really create everything at all from nothing, or is there another reason why the Bible has been started like that? If that is the case, and the way that has been written it is, then the Bible is not exactly correct. So what the people have believed till today is; it is so, just because it has been written in the Bible?
Therefore, nowadays because we are more advanced and we can read between the lines these doubtful descriptions, there are some people that do not believe in God anymore, as they can see easily that there are a lot of things that don’t add up correctly, so, they say that God is only a myth and it is all an invention of our human mind; I know that this might sound strange but this is how the world starts to see religious beliefs today, you see nowadays people want things explained clearly.
To tell you the truth, at this point of time, what worries me most is the fact that most of the non-believers (atheists) are learned people; these learned people are able to talk very easily and state their views clearly, so the poor believers who usually are less educated are in a disadvantaged position.
Because of this situation, the best way for us to prevent it happening, is that we need to read the Bible many times and if or when we find something that does not seem right, if necessary we should review the meanings of the Bible, because we might find a way that may explain why there is so much difference in our beliefs. Perhaps we might have to change our own religious views, in order to come close to the other people views. This is too great a task to explain easily, so we suggest that we break it up in small articles, as this might be easier to understand. Now, since in last few chapters before this we were talking about curses and curses that happen also in the Bible, let us try to make sense to that first subject and what is written in the Bible about curses, since one of these article is written almost at the very beginning of the Bible.
About Bible curse
Since we have been talking about curses in these religious writings, it would be better for us to say what we have in mind to try, in order to overcome this obstacle. First of all, we are going to talk to our religious friends in the hope that they would help to find the right way, or at least see what they think about these curses.
Here we can already hear the unbelievers (atheists) say that there are no such things as curses, so what we are saying is all the fault of our human imagination. But, as you know even the Bible is full of curses, in fact we find the first curse at the very beginning of the Bible when God curses the serpent, Genesis 3, 14-15, and I quote;
*Be accursed beyond all cattle, all wild beasts.
You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust every day of your life.
I will make you enemies of each other:
You and the woman,
Your offspring and her offspring
It will crush your head
And you will strike the hill.
Then to the woman God said, Genesis 3-16
I will multiply your pain in child bearing,
You shall give birth to your children in pain.
Your yearning shall be for your husband,
Yet he will lord it over you.
Then to Adam Genesis 3-17
Accursed be the soil because of you.
With suffering shall you get your food from it every day of your life
It shall yield you brambles and thistles, and you shall eat wild plants.
With sweat on your brow, shall you eat your bread.
Until you return to the soil, as you were taken from it.
For dust you are; and to dust you shall return.
Yahweh (God) was right to be very angry with them; So He cursed them, and this is the very first curse in the Bible, and it came from God.
So, as you can see curses are in the Bible from the very beginning and last curse is at the very end, which sounds like forbidding anybody to change anything said in the Bible.
Now what can be done to avoid the curses, one may ask?
Well at this moment we do not know yet, but we are working on it and we shall see what our friends might suggest. So, we will be discussing curses presently and looking at any possible way to neutralize them. Perhaps a prayer to God-Most-High, master and life giver of the universe might be the answer, so, let me try to write one prayer just for this purpose, or perhaps find one that I have already half written and adjust it to fit my purpose. Then I will ask our friends what they think about this prayer and everything else that we are saying here.
People need God and pray to God
Praying God to shield us from curses
PRAYING GOD MOST HIGH TO SHIELD US FROM CURSES
These are my personal prayers:
Almighty and merciful Father we pray you to help and protect us from curses, and so, we pray you thus:
In the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, to you we turn God-Most-High master and life giver of the entire universe, we are praying you with all our hearts our souls and our minds; we are praying you Almighty Father hoping that in your mercy you would forgive us all our life sins, and that you would make us spiritually clean of any impurities that may affect our soul, and thus we would become worthy in your eyes to pray to you and ask for help, while we serve as your humble servants.
Father this time we pray you to help us, because we believe that there might be people who would curse us, just because we do not agree with them on certain matters, Father shied us from these curses and return those curses on whoever started those curses for no good reasons.
Father, hear our prayers and shield us from those curses! Amen.
I as the writer of these religious writings and prayer, I am praying herewith our Father with all my heart my soul and my mind and I am praying to be allowed to write these religious writings in God’s name, since this would be the only way that I would write them.
Almighty Father I am praying you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who once lived with us here on earth and knows our human misery, our fears and our pains; here I am praying in fear of the unknown, since what we are writing here is not yet known and it might bring down unknown risks to us. Father I am praying you to shield me from any danger that may arise from these religious writings, whether they are in the form of real physical threats or curses, whether those curses are new or were existing curses.
Almighty Father I am praying you in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ to shield me from those curse and forces of evil, since the forces of evil may want to harm me just because I am writing these religious writings and also for other unknown reasons.
Almighty Righteous and Merciful Father I am praying you with all my heart my soul and my mind, I am praying you to make good any injustice that I or my family may have received, whether these injustices have been caused from curses or from the forces of evil wanting to upset me and my family. I pray you Father to just give us back what should have been rightfully ours, whether these injustices have been to property or to individual health. I pray you Father to set everything right again, the way it should have been according to your magnificent and benevolent will, so that, the forces of evil should not prevail, and they should not be able to take advantage of me my family and your righteous system. Father, hear my prayer and help us! Amen.
We wish and hope that the prayers that we have written above are good enough and God would hear our prayers, and so, God would shield us from all curses and the forces of evil and at the same time God would help me to write these religious writings that we are writing here.
Anyhow, now that I have written my prayers, and also, I have talked to our religious friends and explained to them about the prayers that I have written above, hoping that they would say to me something positive, strange as it seems they cannot make up their minds, because even for them this seem a complex issue, so, they have said to me that perhaps I should publish them, and see what happens, it is the only way to know what the public thinks about curses and also our prayers. Anyhow, they have given me some encouragement.
So, here we are publishing these religious prayers asking God to protect us from these curses; and then let us see what the public might be going to say, if they would like to say something about these curses and other religious matters.
And finally I really hope that I have not gone too far from the acceptable religious ways that God and the public could and would accept easily. Now that we have written about the curses and also prayed God, I hope we have done enough about the curses; so I would like to talk about something else in our next article, because we the people of this world have this problem to solve, since we have two identities, one is our body and the other one is the soul, so when we speak of ourselves sometimes we don’t know which identity is more dominant, so in our next article we will talk about our soul.
I think that I have said enough in this article, so, let me say; See you next time with our next article: What my soul is telling me
May God protect and guide us all the right way?
May God bless us all?
