Prayers and discussions
People usually pray to God
We need to pray God
Welcome to our article (20), Prayers and discussions
May God guide and help me say the right things?
Dear readers, we are looking how to improve religious cooperation, so that religions can serve humanity better. In our quest to find the right religious ways, we have noted, that every time we review our religious articles, there is something new that we can add, because our point of view has been modified from what is happening around us, and what we have learned in our study.
Therefore, we who believe in God keep looking for an answer to our religious problems that we want to solve. But whenever there are doubts in our minds the best thing to do, is to pray God to overcome our doubts, so, I am praying God for help and guidance, to write about religious things.
My simple personal prayer
Our Father in heaven, to you I turn God Most High, and I start to pray with all my heart, my soul and my mind. In the name of The-Father The-Son and The-Holy Spirit I am praying, hoping that the ever-present guiding force of the Holy Spirit on earth will guide me; So that, I can write my religious articles according to your will. Father hear my prayer and guide me. Amen.
So, we are praying God, to find a way how to achieve what seems impossible to achieve. We say impossible to achieve because religious fanatics wage war using religion, which is shocking, and their actions can also increase the atheist’s attacks on religions.
We must admit that we cannot blame the atheists completely, because what they are proposing is less harmful for humanity that the terrorist. Anyhow, we believe by discussing our religious problems and praying God, we can come up with a suggestion that can solve the present religious problems or minimize them. So, let us discuss that.
Meeting with friends
Angels Prayers for Reconciliation
Friendly religious discussions
I have asked my friends Mark, Gino and others to come to a friendly meeting; in the hope that we can talk about religions.
My friends have arrived, so, I better meet them at the front door to welcome them. I can see five of them, there is Mark, Gino, Don, Bill and another bloke that I have seen around with Gino. Anyhow we greeted each other as friends do and Gino introduces his friend Peter to me, he seems a decent bloke to me, so, I hope he is interested in religious talks.
Anyhow, we go inside chatting about unimportant things, asking how we feel about this and that, and what we have been doing lately. We sit down around this table that I have made ready, and while I offer them a drink, they all start nibbling from what was on the table, we were all relaxed and enjoying each other company for a while. But then Gino seemed to remember the reason why we were there and asked me. Frank, have you written anything about those religious beliefs of yours?
Of course, I have! I said. And then I said;
To tell you the truth I have written a whole religious chapter all by myself, which I am going to let you read it, if you want to read it. Anyhow, now that you are here, we can discuss religious issues together.
If I remember right, a while ago we were discussing the end of the Bible, which forbids any change to what the Bible says, therefore, any change in religious beliefs; if we believe that the end of the Bible cannot be changed, and anything in the Bible cannot be changed. Here I want to ask, if you have an opinion on that subject.
(My friends short answer.)
Well; no, I haven’t thought much about that, because of the things that are happening around us, and some of those things involve religions; Gino said.
The same here; Mark said, however I have been thinking about the religious situation of today, so, I want to say what I think.
Religious changes ahead
Here we are talking about religions. So, let us stop to think about today religious matters, as this is important to know; because it affects a large part of our life, so, it would be great if we can find answers to the questions raised from Frank. But, as Gino has pointed out to us, there are lots of things happening out there that need to be taken into consideration.
My own personal experience makes me think that things are changing including religions, it has to be that way, since a lot of things have changed in the last 50 years. Now to make it easier to understand these issues, I want to talk about the religions in the past. Now, I want to point out that when I was a teenager, I remember that the Bible was called the Sacred Scripture, and it was a sin for anyone other than the priest to handle it or read from the Bible.
All this has changed, and today the Bible is available to the public; so, anyone can read the Bible; also, other religious books are available to the public to read. So, today it is only a matter of time before the public learns what is written in the Bible. Then decide what can be true and what doesn’t make sense, therefore, we must wait and see what happens.
Anyhow, today most household have a computer, which helps to learn new things very fast; so, the computer is going to accelerate the changes, it is going to be like other great events that have happened in the past, whenever there is something that changes the way of thinking or doing things, great changes will follow this first change, it is inevitable.
Now, let us take a look at discussion groups on the Internet.
There are hundreds if not thousands of groups; they are all discussing their own agenda. There are groups which talk about religion and their beliefs; there are groups discussing philosophy, which in a way can include religion because religion is part of life; there are groups discussing evolution including creation versus evolution; and there is a large group called, Atheism versus Christianity.
The Atheists group is formed largely from well educated people, therefore, when a discussion arises, they are able to put a strong case about their own non-beliefs, so, the religious followers, which are less educated, are left in a disadvantaged position. Because the believers are disadvantaged, the believers can lose faith and move away from their original religions. They change religions in some cases, because they feel the need to believe in God. Changing religions can be even worse, because they will encounter a different problem.
My views are these: The Atheists cannot see that if they destroy people religious beliefs, they are going to create more problems in the world.
This makes me think about what is happening, today there are these terrible news of the killing of innocent people from the Islamic State, and for these reason the atheist can be attacking religions more often, I believe that atheist are making a mistake in believing that the world may be better off without religions. Because looking at the whole situation, I have to say that God and man need each other, and that is the reason why religions need to exist. You see, when these terrible things happen; God is hope for those that need hope most. Do you agree with me?
Gino was impressed and wanted to say something himself:
The bible is the most read book
Religious problems ahead
Gino sees problems ahead
Let me go back to one of our previous meetings; where we were talking about the end of the Bible; because I have been thinking what we said about the end of the Bible; you see, I feel worried about all these religious issues, because they are complex for us simple people.
Look Frank, I really thought that you would give up writing this religious theory of yours; you see, it is hard to do something that other people have ignored for thousands of years, whether it was from fear of the consequences that could follow, or lack of general knowledge makes no much difference. Beside that you and I, including our friends here today, we are not what you call highly educated people. I know that we can understand about anything written, and understand perhaps better than somebody else, because we apply our own reasoning mind properly when we have to, we are also able to write something well enough and be understood, but that may not be good enough to write what you want to write here. You see, even religious writers try to avoid religious changes for fear of getting it wrong, I hope you see what I mean.
Now that I have said that, I see that you look disappointed Frank. Anyhow, for the time being I suggest that we must read the Bible several times, and while we study the Bible, we should ask ourselves, whether the meanings are clear and say what we have been told they mean; or there is another meaning to what we have been told, and decide from that what to do.
We must also look at what is happening today in the world, especially those things that are linked to religions, but we can discuss those things another time; because this is all I want to say today.
This is how this religious meeting ended. Because after that we enjoyed ourselves chatting and having a few drinks. Then my friends departed.
Then I thought that a prayer for guidance and concerns could help. See you next time with, Prayers for guidance and concerns
May God bless us all.
