The Roman Catholic Church
Some religious books and others
Some of our Religious Discussions
Welcome to our article (41), religious discussion one.
May God guide and help me to say the right things in these religious writings?
Dear readers, in this article, we are going to discuss about today religious problems, as we have mentioned in our last article of People life and religion, we believe that religions are seen in a negative way, when negative things happen in religious circles. Anyhow, because of these negative happenings, some people like the atheists use it to attack religions whichever way they can, one of the first target is the Roman Catholic Church, they also attack the Bible, since the Bible is the most important religious book that most people read; they even claim that we would be better off if religions did not exist. We believe that they have grounds for doing so, because when we look at the news about what is happening in the world, we will find that there are some real problems caused by religious people, here we are talking about the terrorist attacks that happen more often these days, therefore, we cannot blame the atheists altogether for trying to take advantage from all this negative happenings; but at the same time they are not helping to solve the problem, since with their negative views the problem becomes even bigger.
But what are these negative happenings that we are talking about?
Now, the first important problem that we want to mention here is about pedophilia in the Christian religions, which sometimes it is really disgusting; we have mentioned pedophilia first, because it has been there for a very long time, it continues to be there and nobody is doing much to make sure that this does not happen any-more; then there are the Islamic extremists that kill people in the name of God.
You see, the Islamic religious book the Koran, it was written during years of wars when Islam was young, in those times people were more violent than today. So, there are reasons to believe that the preachers and writers of those times, had to write the Koran in such a way that their people should kill other people to win the war and survive. Today these religious laws can be easily twisted and therefore killing is not a religious sin even when there is no war going on.
Now, these two main facts are the most extreme unwanted happenings in the religious world and they should never happen. Therefore, mankind needs to think hard and hope that one day we would be able to find a way how to work out these religious problems that exist today, here we could add that we should start to discuss these religious problems with our religious friends, in the hope of finding a way out from these dilemmas. As we know a collective effort is better than a single person effort, therefore, I think that talking to our friends may be helpful.
Now, having talked in the past to our religious friends about this, we have to say that some of our friends have some real interesting ideas about religions, which we would like to discuss and these ideas include also religious books, which we think need to be discussed, even if it is going to be just religious discussions among friends. What we find out from these religious discussions we will write them down, and then we will publish our religious discussions here in hub pages, that is when we are ready and have written them down.
Therefore, today I want to say what we have asked our religious friends, we have asked them to concentrate on and talks about religions, we have asked our friends to talk about religious beliefs on all sorts of religions including religious books, you see we need to take a closer look at all religious books and see if they mean what we have been told they mean, after all we have already said that we continually are in search of religious truths, because we are studying religions to find our answers; so, let us look together more closely at all sorts of religions and religious problems, in the hope of finding the right answer to the existing religious problems, and then, if we find an answer, we will suggest to the public what could be done.
In search of our spiritual self
We live on this planet earth
In search of our religious ways
Since we are studying religions and how they serve humanity, which they do, and we will talk about one of these events before we conclude this article. Because we want to continue to look at the problems that we have today, we believe that to understand our position better, we need to look at a larger picture than we normally do, so, we need to put everything together whatever we know about religions, and then start thinking with this wider view, so that we would not be limited in our understanding of the present religious situation.
Therefore, let us start with what we believe and what we know and agree that those things exist, and then we may be able to see better what could follow later.
What we know now is this, that we live on this planet that we call earth, with our solar system and other planets in the constellation of the zodiac which is part of the Milky Way galaxy, all this we know and most of us agree that these celestial bodies exist, because they have been observed to exist many times, but what we don’t know for sure and what we seem to neither agree or to disagree is this: is there a spiritual force that guides these celestial bodies? Does God really exist and did God create all this? And if not how did this all happen?
Of course, we know that the Bible says that God created everything, but not all of us accept creation as it is written in the bible, in fact today there are people that believe that what is written in the Bible is not correct; so, they rather believe in the evolution of living things, so, here we are going to look for a way that could explain that; at this point of time we could say that creation and evolution could have worked together; perhaps we should look for a way of how could this have happened and this could be the answer to one of our religious problems.
Now these questions that we are asking above will create a lot more questions like: Can we assume that God and Mother Nature (evolution) could have worked together, and have always worked together, so, they are eternal and everything else is eternal? In other words, they have always been there, and if that is the case, then we could say that the material universe and the unseen spiritual universe could be God, and therefore, everything exists within God.
Or should we assume that the existing energies of the material universe somehow crystallized and so God was formed, so, God is part of the whole universe: all these assumptions are not easy to answer, so, it would be better for us to try to sort what the people of this world have already accepted, whether they have been partly accepted or completely accepted, and from this present accepted knowledge work out how to find or form a better religious order, if we could. So, let us study and discuss existing religious books and religious beliefs whichever way we can.
As we have said in our last article, we are having discussions about religious books and beliefs, where we ask why they have been written the way they have been written, when they were written the first time. We know that we are not specialists about this, but at the same time, we are free thinkers that interpreters what we read openly, so, we may have an advantage for this reason. Anyhow, when we have learned what we need to learn, we need to ask about their application at the time when they were written, and again we have to ask ourselves, if these religious books were to be written today, would they be written the same way, or would they be changed, just because other things have changed? We are saying this because this might be the reason why religions sometimes seem inconsistent, for this reason they fail to satisfy everybody because of the different ways and values that mankind has today, compared to when they were written the first place, therefore, because things have changed then religions need to change. If we do all these things, then we could be in a better position to understand what could be done.
So, the question now arises, how do we do all these changes without upsetting the present religious orders too much? As we know there are a lot of religious orders, so, it is going to be hard to avoid upsetting them, but if we want to find a new way even this drawback needs to be overcome. It might help to tell them that we are writing this article to find religious reconciliation for the future benefit of mankind, but even that might not help much, so, we must try hard to avoid any inconvenience that we may cause with this new religious vision.
As we have already said before in these religious writings our aim is to go in search of a futuristic religious theory that would be able to link all existing religions together, and that is our aim; and we hope to find it by studying and discussing religions with our religious friends and other religious groups? We believe that religions are important, because most people believe in all sorts of religions, because when some religious event take place, people attend those events.
Crowd attending Religious event
Important religious event
Anyhow, here we have to say that while we were editing this article, an important religious event has taken place in Rome, so, we would like to say a few things about this event, just to show our readers that religions are still very important today, as it attracts many thousands of people, so, we can say to the atheist groups; forget about telling us that god does not exist, because God and religions are here to stay, because people need God and religions; you need to look at this religious event to see that people need God and religions. So, let us describe this event briefly.
This is one of the rare religious events that happen in the Roman Catholic Church every now and then, this event is the canonization of two popes and the response of the believers has been enormous, and now let us see how the media has reported it:
These are some quotes from the media report:
Pope John XXIII (25 November 1881 – 3 June 1963) and Pope John Paul II (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005) reigned as popes of the Roman Catholic Church and the sovereigns of Vatican City (respectively from 1958 to 1963 and 1978 to 2005). (End of quotes)
The crowd of followers was enormous and peaceful just like what any religious event is supposed to be. So, one could easily say that this is the greatest show on earth; and whatever the atheists and other negative groups may say, they are wrong because religions are still helping to get people together in a friendly way, and therefore, they are helping humanity.
Having said that now we have to say that in our religious writings, sometimes we may sound very negative too, but we are not doing that to destroy religions, because we are doing that to criticize those things that the negative groups use to run down religions, so, there is a great difference; we hope you see what we mean.
Anyhow here under is a link to check out this religious event that we are talking about.
And now, that we have shown you that even today people follow religions, let us go back to our religious discussions, to see how our religious articles could be accepted
How to be accepted
Since we are writing religious articles, we would like that the public accept them, but it is not going to be easy; so, our main concern here is to write something that is acceptable to all religious groups on this planet earth, to do that is not going to be easy, in fact it is the hardest thing to achieve as far as I know. So, I am looking back to the articles that we have already written in these religious writings, like that article written for our readers’ peace of mind, where we explain what we are doing.
Anyhow since I am not so sure how to go about now, I will pray our lord God Most High to accept this earthly explanation, as my prayer for help and guidance from God and I am praying thus:
Here I am my Lord God praying for help: I am turning to anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs and I say to them; please read our religious reconciliation writings fully before you pass judgment. God help me to open the eyes and minds of those readers and let them see that all these religious writings of, Prayers of Reconciliation and reconciliation of the universe, is an idealistic and futuristic religious theory, which is trying to find a way if possible on how to link all existing religions together, we would like to do that in the hope that this new religious theory can bring all existing religious orders together, in the hope that this theory will be able to stop those religious killings in the name of God, which is the most horrible thing that can humanely happen.
Now that we have explained in this article some of our intentions, and the intention to discuss these religious issues, in the hope of writing down a suggestion that could help humanity solve some religious problems; I believe that we have said enough for the time being, and therefore we will have to leave the other discussions that we will be writing in our next article. Religious discussions two.
May God help us to find the right way how to achieve a solution?
May God bless us all?
