Religions and philosophies: Like a game of 'War'!

Updated on March 25, 2018

Each 'card' (philosophy, doctrine or tenet of faith) has its own value!

I've been prone to studying scores of different religions, philosophies and even political positions as of late.

I've come to the conclusion that each position has its values of merit. That no one single human position is entirely right or wrong.

That being said, it seems to correlate a little bit like the game of 'War'.

Certain denominations may have a position of 'more correct' than another on a particular position of faith. At least, this is how I have seen it from my vantage point over here. I try to objectively take a step back, and evaluate for myself, is this position more or less correct than the faith I was originally indoctrinated with when I was in my formative years.

But, we will not be able to know, understand or comprehend this, without lifting the veil we are currently under. This veil is a lack of clarity that divides, not unites us. It is why we go on attacking each other instead of embracing each others' differences, for the respective pathways we all have gone down.

Some pathways are clearly less correct than others. However, even those pathways have a value in helping to shake the higher pathways out of a sense of 'I'm completely right!'

Take for example, hedonism. This is to me a '3' from 2-Ace in a card deck. However, it has some value in showing us that pleasure has a divine meaning, it exists for a reason, that includes good. Otherwise, Jesus would not have turned the water into wine at the wedding at Cana. Yet, multiple Christian sects prohibit consumption of alcohol, as well as ancient Judean sects such as the Nazirites.

It is human lack of clarity that causes these black and white behaviors. Once the veil is lifted and purified, the message of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, made into a song by the Byrds, resonates: 'To Everything There Is A Season'. Nothing is wrong in its own time, when it is done at the correct time.
