The Easter Reminder of our Beloved Father on Greed and Vanity
The intellectual ideals of mankind should be dedicated to enlighten the world on the action of vanity and greed as part of the human imperfection of the sinners. The core Christian virtues of love, humility, compassion and peace have not been spiritually practiced by our young generation as the fast phase of technological development now resulted to the moral degeneration of our society. It is high time now to remind us the Easter message of our beloved Father that we are too much engrossed of the earthly desires and we forget to nourish our spiritual souls. There seems a sign on the biblical revelation in the destruction of the wicked men and the earthly desires of mankind. I use the term “ Savior” to spread the intellectual ideals to serve the humanity including the students and professionals who need so much help and assistance to academically enlighten their minds for the future of their vocation and professional career in their life. That is the reason I take this proverbial message of the bible to spread the good news about the “Savior Hubpages Website ” by the guiding intellectual goal in the creation of "Savior" as reflected by the Christian virtue ( Proverbs 24:3-4) " By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;through knowledge its room are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."
The Easter holiday is the best time for us to relax and enjoy at least lighten up from our office work where we can join our friends, family and loves ones. We can also join Easter celebration and probably schedule for our visit to tourist spots, recreational and entertainment activities or probably visit Las Vegas as the gambling capital of the world. Then will go back to work again so that we can save money for our family and do the same cycle of personal gratification.
Do you also know that almost 70 percent of our life, we are within our office usually from weekdays that we are busy in doing our task. I am always busy to my work with so many paper works and documents to accomplish and talked too much about our position, personal vices, social life and family. I personally experienced just like any other office to complain about office promotion , envy and jealousy about positions, and very proud of our gratified satisfaction of life .While 90 percent of us desire to have some wealth to satisfy our desire in many worldly things in life. We all aspire money and wealth as the age of commercialism, advanced technological gadgets ,fashion and power are the social means of personal recognition in life.
We are now blind by our worldly desires that none of us is exempted including the priests and nuns, monks and pastors as we are all born sinners. It is no longer the spiritual issue that the Easter celebration as Jesus Christ rescued us from our sins. We are now accountable on what spiritual life if we like to go to heaven in our afterlife. However, there is great possibility that most of us in the range of 80-90 percent that our soul will go to hell! Then, maybe only 10 -20 percent may comply what our almighty god will permit us to go heaven. Therefore, you are one of them including me to go to hell except you are imbecile, moron, insane, and mentally retarded, you are the victim of holocaust and brutal innocent death. Only around 5-10 percent chance to go to heaven unless you must fulfilled this Bible verses to save your soul in hell.
Your personal desires are always attached this verses :
" Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is not him. For everything in the world-the craving of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does-comes not from the Father but from the world. ( John 2:15-16)
This world that we live in now has forgotten the simple life as the advent of science and technology provides the worldly life of fashion, advanced gadgets, commercialism, entertainment, media outlook, lucrative condominium , fastfood centers ,high rise buildings and other insatiable needs of man. We learn to forget the basic ethics and spiritual teaching of life that even the kids now are no longer appreciate the Christian values only they want to have new I-pod, laptop, cellphone, and other modern gadgets . It is overtaken by the exploding generation commercialism in the advancement of technology that even money has been their focus of life as you can buy anything you want. We parents are now detaching their moral and spiritual life as we are even engraved by the social fascination of a highly advanced society. In the end, we are being divinely judged by this verse:
The world and its desire pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever ( John2:17)
Our decaying life can only remember when it is too late to redeem our personal desires. We will never expect to live in heavenly afterlife which cannot experience the spiritual ideals of humility, love, peace, dignity and integrity in life. It is more on our conscience and will to follow the heavenly virtues for the God the father embraces us in the goodness of our acts and intentions. Let us not think on personal agenda and interest that penetrated deep in our evil soul . We must now act relentlessly about the true meaning of love to our fellowmen:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices within the truth. It always protects always truths, always hopes, always persevere (Corinthians 13:4-70
The bible reflects an abusive and unconditional love , however, we must always vigilant to remind our love ones on all wrong and evils doings in the society to pursue the genuine love. It does not mean we tolerate the unethical, immoral and wrongful acts we are always there to be the true model of the Christian faith. We must always remind them about this verse :
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to you earthly nature: sexual immorality; impurity ;lust; evil desires; and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming ( Collossian 3: 6-7)
All of us fear on death even the most violent and evil men in this world. There is always redemption of their heart and soul. The human frailty of temptation on vanity and creed has always our spiritual dilemma as the worldly pleasures are the falsely interpreted as heavenly act. It is always in the opposite side to bring our soul in heaven:
Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-which is your spiritual worship-Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to rest and approve what God's will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will ( Romans 12:2)
Please think it over about your worldly desires when you sleep at night in the darkness of the room as you are scared to go to purgatory and hell ! The only chance for you to go to heaven is your total redemption of your spiritual acts. Do not say that I did not warm you to love your enemy, to remove your greediness and vanity, to be humble and considerate, to advocate the personal ideals of dignity and integrity and to be always good to your fellowmen. Most of all , you must share your wealth to the poor give them away for the goodness of your heart. Don't act as a master but be the servant in your office. I am sure the Lord thy God will be delighted to you and think twice before your soul will go to hell! So what can the Savior say to you… HAPPY Easter celebration may you have peace and love in your heart. May this article redeemed your vanity and greed of your spiritual soul.
