Prayers and discussions

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, as you know, we are looking how to improve religious cooperation, so that religions can become friendlier and serve humanity better. In our quest to find the right religious ways, we have noted, that every time we review and edit our religious articles, there is something new that we could add, because our point of view has been modified from what is happening around us; our point of view becomes modified also from what we have learned in our study of religions.
Therefore, we who believe in God, we must say that even with all our religious beliefs, it still happens that we don’t know if we are doing the right religious things, so, we keep looking for an answer to our problems that we want to solve. But whenever there are doubts in our minds the best thing to do is to pray God to help us overcome our doubts, so, I am praying God for help and guidance me, because we need to pray God to write about God and 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 writing as according to your will. Father hear my prayer and guide me. Amen.
As you can see, we are praying God, and with prayers in our heart and beliefs in our minds, we are going to find a way how to achieve what seems impossible to achieve. We say impossible to achieve because some religious fanatics wage war using religion, which is shocking to say the least; their actions increases 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. Anyhow, we believe that through discussions with our religious friends and prayers to God, we can come up with a good suggestion that can solve some of the present religious problems or minimize those problems in the future.
Anyhow, I am waiting for my religious friends to arrive, so that we can discuss these issues.
Meeting with friends

Friendly religious discussions
I have not seen my religious friends for a while; so, I have been thinking about many things, and it is boring, even if you have millions of things to thick about. So, I have asked my friends Mark, Gino and others to come to a friendly meeting; in the hope that we can talk about religions.
Now I am waiting for my friends to come, while I am getting a few things together, so that we may have a few nibbles and a drink during and after the meeting.
At last 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 only seen around with Gino, so, I wonder what type of person he might be. Anyhow we greeted each other as often 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 while chatting about many 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 whatever 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 or done 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. Now I want you to know that for me it has been hard to write that religious stuff. Anyhow, now that you are here, we can discuss religious issues together.
If I remember right a while ago we were discussing the very end of the Bible, which forbids any change to what the Bible says, and therefore, any change in religious beliefs; if we believe that not only the end of the Bible cannot be changed, but also anything in the Bible cannot be changed. Here I would like to ask, have you formed any opinion on that subject since then?
(My friends short answer.)
Well; no, I haven’t thought much about that, because of all those things that are happening around us, and some of those things seem to involve religions; Gino said.
The same here; Mark said, however I have been thinking about the religious situation of today, so, I would like to say what I think.
Religious changes ahead
Mark sees religious changes ahead.
Here we are talking about religions. So, let us stop for a moment to think about today religious matters, as this is important to know; because it affects a large part of our life religious and otherwise, so, it would be great if we can find answers to the questions raised from our fried 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 got 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, and then say something about what is happening today. 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 handle the Bible and read it; 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 not bother what it says.
Anyhow, today as you know 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 radically 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 own original religions. They change religions in some cases, because they feel the need to believe in God. Changing religions could 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 altogether. 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.
What do you say, 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, in one of our meetings; 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 very hard to do something that other people have tried to ignore 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 are going to discuss those things next time; that is all I want to say today.
This is how this religious meeting ended, because after Gino speech we just chatted about other matters that could not interest our religious readers here.
After 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;
WHAT SORT OF GUIDANCE WE NEED FROM GOD?
May God bless us all.
