The main religions of the world

The sketch shows the main religions of the world, there are many religions in the world, but there must be a point where all these religions meet, in these religious writings we are trying to find that point. So that they could agree with each other.

People religious concerns

Welcome to our article (17), People religious concerns

May God guide and help me to say the right things?

Today, we the religious people of the world, who believe in God and religions, as written in the Bible, or derive from the Bible must be concerned. I don’t know if it is my personal impression, but there are reasons to believe that religions are not as popular as they were in the past. Even the press is slack in reporting religious events, as if, they are not as important as before. So, we should ask ourselves, what are the reasons and what can happen in the future?

These concerns that we are talking about here are real, but what is causing it we are not so sure, perhaps today there are other things that are more important than religious events, so, religions being the same old thing is failing to attract attention.

Today we know a lot more than we used to know in the past, because we can easily follow what is happening in the world, therefore, we are more concerned about the world happenings than religions. Whatever is the problem with religions, we should have been able to come up with some solutions, but we have not.

When we look at the news, we see that there are religious problems today; they might not be as extreme as the inquisition, when religions were out of control and they did a lot of harm to those people that were not following religions blindly. So, people were burned at stake, because they said things that did not agree with the religious beliefs, that the clergy believed to be right at the time, but it was a terrible mistake.

Today the Christian religions are more moderate, but some harmful practices might still be there, today religions are arguing still with each other; perhaps to a lesser degree than when they used to hate each other fifty years ago, when most people avoided people of different religions. However, they still don’t trust each other much, when they should be trying to live in peace with each other. So, the question is what we need to do to make religions friendlier with each other?

If we think about it, religions must fulfil the role of being merciful and friendly; because if they cannot do that, then they become useless, since they don’t help to live our lives peacefully. So, it is time that religious leader become tolerant to each other. We want to suggest that religions should be looking for a starting point, where all religions have the same religious beliefs in common. We believe that we can suggest how this can be achieved.

Anyhow, we the people of this world should be concerned, because of what is happening. Take for example the Muslim religious extremist; how can it be explained that people kill other people in the name of God and religions. This is worse than the Cristian inquisition; at least in the Christian inquisition there was a kangaroo court, were the accused might have been able to defend themselves, if they were innocent. But the Muslim terrorist can kill people just because you belong to another religion.

But there is more, how can we explain that in the Roman Catholic Church, the priests must not have sex; but then, not only we find that they might have a sexual partner, but worst still we find that they are pedophiles, which is the lowest of the sexual crimes.

Anyhow, there are many religions in this world, they promise many things but deliver very little, and if there is anything to be delivered is going to happen after we die, which is impossible to prove, so, what religions are promising us is very likely an empty promise. But we like this promise that gives us the chance to live forever, because nobody likes to die, so, we accept this promise with open arms, even knowing that it is a dream that may never become true.

Today main religious problem

We have said above, that the Christian religions have a more tolerant view today, because they preach religious things and how we look in the eyes of God, when we sin. But what about the other religions, see the sketch on this page, and you will see, that there are many religions in the world, therefore we are concerned.

You see, today we must be concerned, because while I am editing this article what is happening in the religious world is shocking; this time it is not the Roman Catholic clergy that goes out to kill people, but it is the Islamic State that kills people because they are not Muslims like themselves, they don’t even try to put them on trial, they just kill them, even the most innocent people are killed this way. So, this is another reason why we must find a way that makes religions more tolerant and friendly to each other.

So, we must be concerned about the existing religions and what needs to be done, to make them friendlier to each other; for this reason I am concerned, because even though I know that mankind needs to believe in God; it concerns me to start talking against the present religious trend in case I get it wrong. But then again, I am thinking that we must make a star, so, I am reviewing what we know, and then try to fit all religions in a way that can make them friendlier.

For instance, we know that man needs God, and perhaps God needs man also; we know that there are these existing religious beliefs, which in a way fulfil those needs which mankind needs. But for me those existing religious beliefs are not enough, and they need to be more consistent with each other, because there are things that don’t work the way they should, so, I believe that we need to upgrade religions in a way that they will be accepted from most believers, and at the same time, they are friendlier with each others. At the same time control better the priests that are pedophile and suggest a way that even the Muslims and the atheist can accept; but this is not going to be easy. But let me suggest a way, how we want to set it up.

We are going to set the stage for the entire world to see,

And when you read these pages you might have to agree,

That this is the golden door of golden opportunities,

That God is willing to give to us and to all humanity.

Therefore, I am praying God to help and guide me.

So, I pray God to help me,

My Lord God, I pray you to guide and help me, since I am concerned about what I am writing, I am concerned in case I make mistakes, but at the same time I know that it needs to be done, so, I pray you Father to help me,

Father hear my prayer, amen.

We are studying religions

You see, we are studying religions; and what can be done to make them work the way we they should. For this reason, I am praying God to guide me, because, just by thinking what we want to write I feel very concerned.

Because to achieve what we want to achieve, we must break free from old religious traditions, which for centuries and thousands of years, have been observed closely from most religious believers. So, for us to suddenly break free from the old religious traditions will be shocking. Therefore, I am concerned that the entire world can hate me for writing what I am writing here, and for this same reason they may not accept these new religious views, until they realize that religions must change, to do a better job.

Now, this does not mean that they must accept what I am writing here, but the fact remains that religious changes are needed, in order to achieve cooperation in the religious world of tomorrow.

Therefore, we must be strong in our beliefs, if we want to write these religious changes that we believe are needed. And we must believe, that if it is God’s will that I must write these religious articles, since I feel driven to write them. I pray God to help me and guide me in this hard task.

To explain the present state of religions, I am inclined to believe, that the reasons for the present religions being as they are today, and for being left unchanged, it has been because people have had a great fear to change them. Of course, there have been good reasons not to change them until today.

But as we know, there is a right time and a wrong time for doing anything, and even though in the past, it was not right to change religious traditions, today it is right to modify, change or upgrade religions, to solve the problems that we have mentioned above, but also for other reasons that even today may not be obvious, so, let us talk about the reasons for religious change.

-----------------------------------------------------------

The modern easy computer

Today computer are better than before and they help humanity learn things faster and faster, this knowledge accumulate in our minds and therefore bring change to the ways of living and also religious beliefs, as it would be the only way to make sense

The reasons for changes

Let us try to explain the reasons for religious changes, that we believe can improve religious acceptance.

Because today we start viewing everything different in our mind eyes, the reason why we have this different view, it is because today things are changing very rapidly compared to the old times, and this is also changing our way of thinking and perceiving things, this would also include religious beliefs.

In the past, we the people went to church on Sundays, we listened to the sermon that was being preached, and then we went home and thought about it, we compared it to our life and if we were doing the right things. In the past, we believed everything that was being preached to us, since there was no other source of knowledge, that we could compare to what the preacher had said.

But today it is different, news is readily available to the public, we can learn and compare things, so, our views can change, because of what we have learned. All these changes that are taking place now, are going to change even faster in the future, one of the reasons for these changes happening faster, it has been brought about by the computer; and we know that the computer is here to stay; therefore, changes will happen even faster in the future. We know that these changes are going to take place, because even today we see the need for these changes.

Therefore, if we think about it and make use of our intelligent minds, we will understand that with the passing of time everything changes, even those things that for a very long time, we have believed could never change. Therefore, today we find ourselves in a position that needs adjustment for the future, and this includes existing religious beliefs and religious orders.

So, to make the right adjustments, everything must be reviewed and adjusted to suit the present time; otherwise the existing religious ways, will not make sense to the present generations; and they will make less sense to the future generations. Now, if religion does not make sense to the believers, those believers will not believe in religion, therefore, there is a good chance that people could abandon religions altogether.

To explain this situation better, let us imagine how everything was done in the past. You see, in the past not many people could read, and for those that could, there was a good chance that they never had a Bible to read, so, everything was left to the priests who followed their religious ways, that is the reason why nothing has happened for centuries.

Today everything is different, most people can read and write, they can use the computer to search for anything that they want to know, so, knowledge has changed in favor of the simple people, because anybody can learn how things are, instead of the few people that to control the people, they would use the same ways that their forefathers used to control the people. For these reasons we believe that in the future religions will be modified.

Future religions

Having reviewed what we have said above, we have reasons to believe that the time has come, when existing religious beliefs cannot stay much longer as they are, and people like me who believe in God and religion must do something about it, like suggesting a new religious theory, to ensure that religious beliefs can last forever; because we know that man needs God, and also God is hope for those that need hope most, therefore, religions are needed and are here to stay. Because we believe that are important for humanity.

These actions that we are suggesting, must take place soon, to secure the future of religions, even if we find it hard to modify religions. We need to do this soon enough, because human evolution has reached an advanced stage, and I dare say that humanity starts to question the present religious system very much, because we are living in the age of reason, where the human mind helped by the computer perceives and understand lots more things than we used to in the past, and through these extra understanding, we often like to believe that our minds can guide us to overcome anything in our way, with or without God’s help.

Then, we are living in the age of the computer, which enable us to learn things faster than before. Because of this computer devise, some of the people are becoming intellectually advanced, and through this acquired knowledge, they can ask themselves what’s the use of religion nowadays. Because they can perceive that the existing religious traditions, don’t fit well with the needs of the people in today’s world. Therefore, the atheists may have a point to say that not only God does not exist, but also say that religious traditions have become useless beliefs. You see, this is one of the reasons why there are atheist’s groups today.

So, in order to avoid this happening to religions, we the believes need to do something about it, because it is obvious that we need to modify religions and make religions fit the needs of this present generation, and for the future generations.

Therefore, here we are trying to find a way to achieve these religious modifications without upsetting anybody; we need to do this step by step and link everything together, because only if we are able to link all existing religions together, we will be able to save religions mostly the way they are these days. May God help us achieve that?

I believe that we have said enough in this article, so, see you in our next article, let us talk about more religious reviews.

May God bless us all?
