Religious beliefs views
Welcome to our hub (32) of, Religious beliefs
May God guide and help me to say the right religious things in this article?
Dear readers, as you know from our previous articles; we believe in God and religions, but that might not be enough to explain everything we believe in, and for this reason we are studying religions to make sure that we are right in our religious beliefs. Therefore, these religious beliefs, religious views and explanations that we are writing here are part of our religious study. So, while it may seem that we might be talking only about our own religious beliefs, in reality these studies are part of a larger study of religions, which we are carrying out in order to write these religious writings, so that we may come to understand what needs to be done to improve religions, so that one day people are able to believe in the right religious things, if they accept our future religious views. You see, it is what people believe that counts in religions, so, by talking and exploring our own religious behavior, we are able to learn something that effects all religious people; so, let us see first of all what we have to do to satisfy our own religious needs, since this is the main driving force in the religious field.
First of all, in order to understand religions, we need to explain even to ourselves our own religious needs, so, we need to reason within ourselves what our religious needs are and the reasons why they are so. Now if we look at our previous articles, God works in a mysterious way, and Praying God for help, you would be able to see our own personal needs, perhaps other people might have different needs and beliefs, but these are my own religious beliefs and explanations, we have to say that there are many way how to explain our religious beliefs, and at this very moment it seems that it is our religious needs that influence us a lot.
So, I ask myself, what were (or have been) the psychological forces that have made me become a strong religious believer nowadays, so much so that I am even writing religious articles; here I have to say that there are many things and some of them have been written in our previous religious articles as you can see, and some will be written later on as we continue writing them.
Now, since we are writing religious articles we would have liked to explain what we would like to achieve, and say also something about to our readers, for our readers’ peace of mind, but we are not doing this because we don’t want to repeat the same things too many times, So, I am ending this first part with a prayer to God to help me.
So, here I am praying God to help me;
Almighty and Merciful Father forgive me all my life sins and make me clean of any impurities that affect my soul, and thus, I would become worthy to pray to you for help and guidance, and then you would be able to help me, while I write these religious writings of, Prayers for Reconciliation and the Reconciliation of the universe.
Father, hear my prayer and help me! Amen.
People need God and pray to God religiously every day
Religious beliefs explanation
If we would like give a better explanation to our religious beliefs overall, we could say that it is an inborn human need that people need God and pray to God.
And now let me explain my personal religious side, as far as I remember when I was young, I have always believed in God and religion, just the way that I was taught from my parents, grandparents, relatives and those religious institutions that I went to when I was young. But I should admit that I have behaved just like any other teenager when I was in the company of other young men, because sometimes, I wanted to make believe that I ignored religious beliefs just as they did, so that my friends and other tough people would not ridicule me, because of my religious beliefs, therefore, in a way I have been forcing myself to live most of my life in a half religious vacuum, just because that was the way most of us young men used to live.
But many things have happened to me since then, and those happenings have changed me in a religious way, because late in my life my religious beliefs have become stronger than ever, so, I had to let go the way that other people want us to believe and behave in a non-religious way. Today I should say that my religious beliefs have become so strong that I had to start writing them. I know that now you want to ask me; what has happened to you that have made you change so much religiously?
Dear reader; I am sure that you would like to know what has happened to me, and I am very willing to tell you whatever I can. So, I am going to tell you and fulfil your desires by explaining to you everything as much as I can explain to you.
But first, because I am a believer allow me to say that God is great indeed, because God has been the active force that has made happen those things that have changed me, and God has also guided me in such a way that I have become a great religious believer nowadays: And I can assure you that God will guide anybody that wants to be guided from his divine force to do his will, so that they will be enlightened and know the truth about God
So, what has happened to me are many God’s driven things, which sometimes I am still trying to understand myself fully, and I believe that there are times that these religious happenings have just happened to me for a reason, I have observed these happenings and some of the most important ones I have written down, as these happenings have been the ones that have changed my religious life beliefs.
So, let me explain my present personal situation and make a list of those happenings which are worth writing hereunder and I will call them, religious predisposition; since I believe that people have a certain disposition towards religion within themselves.
Prayers for Reconciliation, writings of angels poem
Let us talk now about these religious predisposition:
1) Perhaps I should start by saying that I had a religious predisposition, but apart from my personal religious predisposition, during my life I have had some very personal religious dreams, which have reinforced a lot my religious predisposition; I have to say that these religious and interesting dreams that I am talking about, they have already been written here in Hub Pages in Menfranco Spiritual Dreams, so I cannot repeat them here, but you can visit them with this link, Cosmic Spiritual Dreams there are also some other minor dreams that I am going to write somewhere later on, as they played a large part in making me a better religious believer.
2) What I am going to say next may seem to be a bit of a contradiction by itself, because during the later part of my life, I had an experience about deep human love, which turned those love feelings into religious beliefs. I would like to tell you a bit more about this love with no physical love happenings. But before I do that I should inform you that I have learned to write English just because I wanted to write to my sweetheart; therefore, I believe that God made me fall in love with this special woman, so that I would start writing my long love letters to her, and in doing so I would have to learn to write to a higher standard. Now the outcome of this love was a one-sided love affair and nothing ever happened at all between us: Therefore, those love feelings were turned into religious beliefs, since I started to pray God to help me with my unwanted love. So, you see what I mean, when I say that God works in mysterious ways, about this issue we will write another hub later.
3) If you have read the beginning of my religious writings of, Prayers for Reconciliation, you know that there I had this supernatural encounter, where I was greeted by these supernatural beings as the author of Reconciliation of the Universe; you see, the outcome of this encounter has greatly reinforced my religious beliefs, as I am sure now that there is really something out there that follows us closely and know everything that we do; of course there are also many other reasons why I believe what I believe today, so, I am going to write some of these other reasons hereunder.

The other religious reasons
In this sub-article here called, the other religious reasons, I want to explain some of my personal feeling and observations that have taken place during the time that I have been writing my religious beliefs, as you are seeing them written here.
First of all I want to inform you our readers of what has been happening inside me, while I have been writing ‘Reconciliation of the Universe;’ because while I have been writing these religious beliefs, I have felt within myself that I was praying God for protection and many other reasons, I had to pray God because of this unexplained danger that I felt, whether this feeling of danger was caused from my own writing, which if we analyze them are somehow different to the normal religious ways, and therefore, I would worry whether I would get them wrong in the eyes of God or the people.
But anyhow, one may ask what sort of protection I wanted from God. Well, I don’t know exactly, but I have been feeling within myself that only God could have been able to protect me and my family from these dangers that could be caused from what I was writing; you see, I was going to write new religious things that people had never openly said before, but strange as it may seem, even when I felt this danger I continued to write my religious writings. Here again I might have to say that we the people need God, and we need to pray to God for our own peace of mind, you see how I feel about what is happening to me in this article?
Anyhow, perhaps it was not only that feeling of writing something religiously wrong that was worrying me, but there was also this other feeling that I have had in my entire life, which was telling me that perhaps there was something wrong between me my family and God, as it seemed to me that God was not helping us much at all, even though I was praying God many times. I have been thinking all this, because looking back at my whole life I believe that I have had to struggle more than the normal share, in fact, since the time when I was very young. And also looking back at my parent’s family history, and the great misfortune of my father death from a lightning strike when I was only five years old, and the ill health and early death of my sister, and the great hardship that my mother had to endure to look after us up to the age when we would have been able to earn our own living, and then my mother had to look after my sister’s children because my sister was sick; and my brother family who have a retarded son and a half sick wife; and then myself with my sick wife who makes me live a very hard life indeed, and my children that sometimes are struggling and become easily upset because of the way of life that we are forced to live. Today while I am editing this hub I can add that I have also a very sick daughter and a son that I hope God will help to heal them up somehow. So, I can only think that perhaps God will help me and my family, if I continue to write my religious writings and while I am writing them also pray God to help me.
All this and more I have seen during my entire life, and sometimes I feel as if God has forgotten us, sometimes I even feel that I am being tried like Job, as you might know, this story of Job is written in the Bible, but at the same time I continue to write my religious writings. Now because I am a believer and I believe in God even if the way I believe might be a bit different from the way that other people believe in God, I feel that I am still a believer and would have liked to see God helping us more openly, but this does not seem to happen.
So, as I have already said, because of so much hard life and bad luck in our family, I sometimes ask myself why and what is the reason behind all this: Is it because God has forgotten us since some of my forbears may have sinned? And therefore, God has abandoned us because of their sins, and He will not help us until we repent and ask forgiveness for their sins and then follow His ways: Or is it because somebody who has power and able to curse has cursed us, and so we will not thrive until that curse has been removed. Dear readers, I should say here that religions and religious beliefs sometimes are very strange, so, they make us do some strange things.
Anyhow, whatever is the reason I turn to God and pray in the hope that God remembers us and helps us? So, I pray to God our Father to forgive us our sins and our forbear’s sins, that is if they have sinned that badly. And then if somebody has cursed us, I pray to God our Father to remove that curse from us, since He has the power above all other to remove it. And I also pray God to remove the curse and forgive the doer if God sees it fit to forgive him/her, but if the doer returns to curse us again for no reasons, then let the curse fall back on the doer himself if God sees it fit, because by right whoever curses somebody for no reason, that same curse should fall back on him. So, Almighty Father, whatever it is this drawback that affects my family, I pray you Father to help us overcome it, and I pray you to protect us and let us live a healthy and better life; what I have said may seem somehow strange, but a believer believes many things, even if what he thinks is strange indeed. This observation would also include the following sub-article.
Writing religion as a prayer to God
So, here I am my lord God, writing these religious writings as a prayer to you God Most High, in the hope that you would help us somehow. Now, above all I pray God for my children, so that they might live their lives better than I am living mine. Therefore my religious writings of ‘Reconciliation of the Universe’ is a huge prayer to God our Father, and it is a prayer that may last my entire life, and therefore, I hope that God accepts my writings as a dedication of my faith, even if my writings are somehow different from the normal classic religious writings of nowadays, because at the same time I believe that I am trying to improve religions, by trying to set new goals in a way that all existing religions could feel linked to each other, and if they do, then separatism would not be possible any longer, if and when these religious suggestions that we are writing would be accepted and used.
Therefore, I believe that it may not matter if these religious writings are not the classic religious writings, because I have to follow my idealism, my heart and my soul if I want to be true to myself, so I have to write what they lead me to believe in, after all it may be just what God wants me to write.
Therefore, may God our Father hear and accept my prayer in the form of these religious writings, and also the prayers that I pray every day of my life; I am praying in the hope that God grants my children and their offspring (if there will be any) a safe, healthy and a better life than I am living now myself.
Deep within my heart I believe that the act of my writing, Reconciliation of the Universe and other religious stuff is the most likely prayer that God will accept from me, so, I hope that God would protect me and my children and their offspring, and grant them a healthy and better life in the future. So, if God wants me to write these religious writings as a prayer, then let it be, even if I have to spend the rest of my life writing it, because it could also be never ending, as there are always new religious things to say in the future.
Now to put an end to this article and my prayer I say; Father, hear my prayer and help us, amen.
I believe that I have said enough in this article, so see you in our next article called, Mankind religious beliefs.
May God bless us all?
