Reconciliation talks

Updated on August 18, 2020

We need to discuss and reconcile

We need to discuss and reconcile things, sometimes even those things that have been for a long time accepted from humanity need to be looked at and reconciled and that includes also religions, even if some of us don't like that idea.

Jesus Christ is the greatest man that ever lived on earth and the best teacher of religion, while everybody else were discussing, he knew everything that there was to know. So it would be helpful to follow the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Religious discussions

Welcome to our article (26) Reconciliation talks

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

Dear readers, in this article we are going to discuss religious issues, the aim of these discussions is that we would like to reconcile that part of religion that does not agree with today religious views.

Now, let me write a prayer to God, asking God to help me to write these articles: you see, I feel more connected to God of the universe, after I pray, so, let me pray.

Almighty Father, I am praying you with all my heart, my soul and my mind hoping that in your mercy you would forgive me all my life sins and you would make me clean of any impurities that may affect my soul, so that I become worthy in your eyes to write these religious writings according to your will. Father hear my prayer, amen.

Now that I have said a prayer to God, let us go back to our discussions. I believe that it is obvious that if we want to reconcile anything, we need to discuss our differences; we are going to talk about any difference and see what is right and what is wrong. Anyhow, our discussions are about our religious beliefs, and our aim is to modify existing religions, if they need to be modified, because we see that they do not work properly, so, we suggest modifying existing religions.

We know that this may alarm people but let me pray God to guide and help me.

Almighty and merciful Father, with my personal concerns I come to you praying, with all my heart, my soul and my mind, hoping that in your mercy You would guide and help me to write this article of reconciliation talks, I ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father hear my prayer, amen.

Religious reviews

When we look at the religious world today, we see that religions do not work the way they must work, therefore, we believe that religions may need to be reviewed and modified. This is one of the reasons we are writing these articles.

Now, the most important articles that we have written deals about our religious beliefs; we have written them because of the extremist groups that use religious beliefs in such twisted ways, these extremists do terrible things; one of which is the 9-11 terrorist attack in USA; but that is not all, because today while I am editing this article the Islamic State terrorist group are killing innocent people, just because they don’t belong to their religious group; then, we have the atheists threats that want religions to disappear.

So, these religious articles are being written to find a way how to avoid the terrorist threat, for this reason, we believe that religious changes are required. Now, since the terrorist groups are active these days; the atheist group is in second place.

Anyhow, to prove to the atheists that God exists, we have written, Man needs God, where we claim that God exists at least by definition. Anyhow, we explained that Man needs God because it has been so since the beginning when man became able to think abstract things, so, they invent many gods as we know from the world history.

Now let us talk about God and how we see God today, we believe that God is different to the God described in the Bible, so, we have formulated a theory hoping to find a way to describe this new living God, who can be life or life energy capable of helping life to exist.

We have also written, , Religious options of the future, where we explain the needs for a new form of religion; in this article, we start saying that some religious changes need to happen.

Then of course we have published, Prayers for Reconciliation, which is the main theme of this religious writings, we have had some discussions with our friends and members of the public about religions, with this in mind now we are going to write more religious views.

Trying to learn to type better

If we want to be understood better, we have to try harder to express ourselves better. So, here I am trying to write and edit my hubs the best way I can, so that I can reach a stage of clarity for the readers.

Religious writing views

We are writing these articles to describe a new way of religious beliefs. To do that we are describing God in a different way to the God described in the Bible; therefore, now we want to find a way, how to describe this living God, who can be life or anything that make life possible. Therefore, we are looking for ways how to explain this, and we want to take our readers step by step to see how we arrived at this conclusion.

You see, we have written and republished others religious articles, we have had discussions with our religious friends about religions, and from these discussions, we have concluded that to make sense with religions, we must review all existing religions and find if there are other meanings why religious books have been written the way they have been written, and why religious leaders interpret religions the way their forbears thought them to believe.

So, the main aim in this article is to review those religious beliefs and meanings, in the hope that we can come up with some explanations, that can help us understand this religious situation. Now, to do that we need to start from the beginning with all religions. In this case, because my friends and I are Roman Catholic and this is the religion that we know most, we must be looking at the Bible and what it teaches us. Anyhow, we believe that there are meanings in the Bible that are exaggerated, for this reason the atheists are finding it easy to attack religions.

Having said that, I start thinking what is the most important issue that needs to be looked at, and suddenly it comes to my mind the first thing that the atheists attack religious people, is about creation. You see, the atheists do not believe that God created anything as it is said in the Bible; they believe that whatever exists today has been created from natural forces, so, God has nothing to do with creation, because God and God’s creation is our human invention. Now I want to say that we cannot prove to the atheists that God exists, so, the next best thing that we can do is to adjust religious meanings in such a way that they can make sense to the atheists as well.

Today meetings is the way to go

Meeting and talking to people is the best way to find out what other people think about any matter that one is interested in, this includes also religions, in fact, religions is one of the subjects that a lot of people talk about

Moses saw God as a burning bush, when asked who was he, God replied Yahweh, and since then Yahweh has been God of the Israelite. From here the religious book the Bible was born.

Meeting our religious friends

The other day we talked about the Bible with our friends. So, let us hear what Mark had to say.

Mark speech in a nutshell,

If we want to see why the Bible has been written the way it has been written, and why we understand the Bible the way that we have been taught, then, we have to start from the beginning and use our logic reasoning minds, to see if what we have been taught stands up to logic human reasoning; therefore, when it does stand up to our human reasoning, we have to try to see the reasons, and then we can decide how to proceed with our own religious beliefs.

In my opinion I feel that in those times when the bible was written, it made sense to the believer; you see, people have always needed religions and a God that could protect them from what they could not protect themselves, so, this God that was shown to be superior to the other existing gods, was welcomed from the believers, after all the Israelite needed this God to free them from the Egyptian, so, Moses their leader provided that God when he went on Mount Sinai, he met Yahweh (God) as a burning bush, from there we know the rest of the Jews story, the story that for thousands of years has gone on and has become the largest religion in the world.

Here I want to point out that this religion has done a lot, and even though today there are several religions from it, because it has changed; this religion has guided lots of people in a meaningful way until today. But today there are people that do not need religions anymore. so, the atheists want to see religions disappear.

Now let me say how I see religions today: Today we have to view religions in two different ways; the negative part of religion is that the Muslim religions are linked to terrorism, these terrorist are a threat to everybody including the religions themselves.

Anyhow, I believe that most people still need religions; we have always needed religions even if the atheists believe that we do not need them. But, how can we let religions disappear? I believe that it can never happen.

We need to look at today religious set up, as a way of life that has been proven for centuries to work well with people; therefore, people will not accept drastic religious changes. But if we can work out what can be done without upsetting the whole system, then we could move to the next religious system, which very likely is inevitable: I am saying it is inevitable because everything changes with time and religions change. We must look in the past to see that two thousand years ago people had different religions altogether.

Our views and more speeches

When Mark stopped talking; I, Gino and another two friends that were interested in these religious talks said that we understood what he had said. But at the same time, I and Gino thought that there was a need to say more. So, I asked Gino to say something himself, knowing that Gino is very crafty with his ideas.

Gino speech

I know that our friend Mark has said many wise things that make sense, but what he has said stops short of giving us a solution about reviewing the Bible and other religious books, indeed it is hard for any of us to find a solution for these religious problems, therefore, I believe that it is not going to be easy. Perhaps we may have to find another way around that does not upset religious people, and at the same time suggests something that could stop what is going on.

But the only thing that I can suggest now, it is that we can review the Bible interpretation, but we have to be careful, we must make sure that everything is written in such a way that is all seen as a suggestion of the possible present situation. It needs to be written in a conditional way with plenty of ifs and maybes, so that the readers can make their own minds up as they go along; we also need to remind the readers that what is being written are only suggestions, so, only time will tell what is going to happen to religions in the future.

Well that is how I see this situation and what we might be able to do today; this is the main thing I wanted to say to you, now you can make up your own mind.

Gino stopped talking and we said, your idea sounds good perhaps we should indeed try to review the Bible and any other religious books.

I believe that we have said enough in this article, so, see you in our next article about, Bible reviews are necessary, after all we want to study all sorts of religions.

May God bless us all.

      Thank you Dave Mathews for your comment: but these days I am afraid that just believing in God like you do is not going to be enough to satisfy mankind, so some adjustment maybe required to keep people believing in God and this is what I am trying to work out with my religious writings.

      Ooooops! God can never and will never be different.

      There is absolutely no need for any other Religion ever. Christianity is the only true religion whereby God Himself promises mankind an opportunity to return to Him in heaven. All the other so called religions simply promise a hole in the ground after dying.
