The Bible ancient religious book
Believing in God and religion
Welcome to our article (59), Believing in God
May God guide and help me to say the right things?
We know that believing in God is good for humanity. Now, let me talk about myself, you see, as a child, I was taught that there is God, angels and spiritual beings. And since I was born in Italy, I was taught according to the Roman Catholic Catechism, and those rules in the catechism helped me during my younger years to believe in God. This religion is based on the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which is about forgiveness and love, and a small part is based on the Old Testament.
So, for many years I have believed in those Roman Catholic religious beliefs, the way that they had been taught to me when I was young, even if there were times when I had doubts about them, because I am like everybody else, so, I was thinking that God might not exist. But then again, I believed that everything was the way that I had been taught.
But as I have grown older my beliefs have changed considerably, starting from when I left Italy to move to Australia. In Australia I have met different people with different religious backgrounds, Therefore, I have learned that there are other religions, and some of them are good religions, I have noticed that the majority of religions come from the Bible, which is the same book that the Roman Catholic have with a few changes.
Now, the purpose of religions is to have a set of rules to follow, so, we can live in peace with the rest of the world, to believe that there is a loving and benevolent God, to love God with all our heart and love one another.
But today there are extremist religious groups that twist their religious beliefs to the point where everything becomes mixed up, and they kill using God’s name. This is a shame because this brings down what God represents. People must understand that God represents life itself, therefore, there is no way that God needs people to kill each other, because life is a part of God himself.
Anyhow, the behaviour of these groups might have been acceptable in the past, when people were more violent than today, and most times you had to kill or be killed; but, those were other times and those times ended with the coming of Jesus Christ, because he taught us forgiveness.
But the extremist don’t use forgiveness and they fight other religions, for this reason, we are writing the theory of, Reconciliation of the universe, where we suggest to the people, that religions need to change to solve our problems.
I am praying God for help and guidance
SO, I AM PRAYING GOD FOR HELP AND GUIDANCE.
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 can help me; So, that, I can write our religious writing as humanly as possible according to God will, and in such a way that humanity can accepts them and use them for the future benefit of mankind. Father hear my prayer and guide me! Amen.
Humanity has humanised gods
We need to believe in God
Anyhow, we need to believe in God because it is good for all humanity. In our human history, we can find that religions have a good influence overall, so, let us talk about believing in God.
Now, if we believe in God, it is obvious that there can be only one true God, and this God is the God that created us all, even if this God turn out to be different from the God of the Bible, that we have been taught when we were young.
Therefore, we must assume that God exists because there is life, and God and life is one and the same thing, therefore, there cannot be any other God, unless it is the God that created life. Anyhow, I believe that religions are complex, so, it is hard for anybody to say what is right and what is wrong.
Okay, what we have said, may not make sense to everybody, but for me religions is a way of life that we choose and if I had to choose a religion, I would choose my Roman Catholic religion for being one of the best religions in the world, since this religion is based on the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ and is very humanistic.
But why should we believe that there is a God? Well there are no real answer to this question. You see, what we are thought to believe may not make sense, because it does not connect to everything we know, so, there must be another explanation that can connect everything together. Perhaps, we should think that God is not like a person, because it is impossible for a person to have all the attribute that God has, for instance, a person cannot be everywhere but God is everywhere, so, it is more likely that God is a life force that covers the entire universe, and part of it can turn into anything he wants and even a person, therefore, it makes more sense, if we believe that God is life, and we view God, as the life force that covers the entire universe, this can explain the existence of God and everything else.
Some of the Universe views
God existing life force
So, we may have to believe that we all come from the same life force of the universe, and we can call this existing force, God-life-force of the Universe, since this life force represents all living and spiritual things.
Today the main religions make us believe that there is a God and there is an afterlife, and that our own present life is made up of two entities put together, one is our body and the other is our soul; now we can easily explain to ourselves about our bodies, but our spiritual part is that part of us that can’t be explained easily, since it can’t be seen and it belongs to God as it is of the same substance of god life force of the universe, you see, God gave it to us, so that we could live on earth, well at least this is how we believe it is.
Now it follows that at our death our body returns to the earth and our soul or spirit should return to God, so, our soul or spirit being part of God life force energy is immortal. The folklore tale says that at our birth when we received our spirit, our spirit was made to forget where it came from, so, we are not sure where we come from, but there is a sense of belonging left in our spirit and this sense of belonging drives us to search for the truth, if we search our soul very carefully we may be able to find it.
Imaginary afterlife stairways
Mankind ways of believing in God
We believe that most of mankind has always believed that there are Gods, and that there is an afterlife, therefore, we keep asking ourselves what is God like? And how would this afterlife be like? Most of us have been told from our elders how these religious beliefs are, but we have our doubts.
Now, if we look at the religious groups of the world, there are very few believers that believe the same religious things. Therefore, if we want to find what’s true and what’s false about religions, we can’t discard anything at all from religions, and we must include those people that don’t believe in anything, and those who believe only in scientific explanations, because they believe in something even if they don’t believe in anything.
So, we must put all religions and beliefs together, even those people that do not believe in any religion at all, to find out what they have in common with the rest of us. I believe that it is necessary to find the beliefs that we have in common, because this can make us see, how God can be like. And we must widen our field of views, as much as its need to be widened, so that they include all known, unknown and any possible beliefs.
Anyhow, I believe that there must be a God because there is life, and God is the active life force of the universe that makes life possible. If one day we find out that there is no God like person, we can always say that, God exists because life exists, or at least by definition because God is life.
My personal beliefs are that I believe there is a God, because if I didn’t believe that there was a God, I would not be writing this article. So, I believe that we all come from God because that’s the only possible way to exist, since we believe that God is the existing life-force that gives life to all living things.
The new religious theory
Now, our religious theory is a new way of looking at religious beliefs, so, I am worried to publish my theory, because the public may not accept it, unless it is published at the right time. However, I cannot wait because I am growing old, so, I must write and publish my religious writings of Reconciliation of the Universe, even if it may not be the right time to do it.
During my life, I have had this experience, that there are times when we are doing a task and while we are doing this task suddenly a thought comes into our mind, and that thought or idea is the best answer to our problems; in a parallel way while I am writing my theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, this idea comes suddenly into my mind, this idea is like what some people call vibes which in the end might prove to be right, in my case these vibes are creating a problem that I wish to avoid. My vibes are saying that my religious theory is ahead of time, but I am still writing them, because I believe in God.
These religious writings are our prayer to God, and they are going to be continued with next article, nature of the universe and earth. See you soon.
May God bless us all.
