Humanity and religions

Updated on June 8, 2019

Big bang and religious beliefs

The big bang theory is a theory that assumes that a very long time ago there was a big explosion in the universe and from this big bang the universe was formed, it was spontaneous, so there was no need of a creator like God?

Mankind has always needed gods, most religions explain their gods in a way or another; but the greatest God that we know today is the god of the Israelite as in the Bible, that Moses met on Mount Sinai in the form of burning bush.

Humanity and religions

Welcome to our article (36) Humanity and religions

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

As we have seen in our previous article, where Stephen Hawking, physicist argues in a new book; God did not create the universe and the "Big Bang" was an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics. We know that what Stephen Hawking is saying is right, but not withstanding this Stephen Hawking theory, we the people will continue to argue otherwise, because we need to believe in God, because this is an inborn need that we have, therefore, we will continue to search for God existence, even knowing most people believe that God may not exist.

Anyhow, in this article, we are going to write the need that we have for a God and religions, we are discussing about our studies of religions, where we are learning about mankind need for God and religions. Therefore, we are going to argue our religious case in the following way:

Since the beginning of recorded time, mankind had this need to believe in deities, because they needed gods and religions to guide and protect them. Anyhow, they had many problems to find what they wanted, first to find the right god and religion for themselves; and then, they had to write their God’s laws, which was what they would believe about their God, and then they had to follow their God’s laws.

Why mankind needs a God you may ask? Well, let us explain this the way that we see it; you see, we believe that, Man needs God because they turn to God for help if and when they need help, as we have written in our hub, Man needs God, and at the same time, if there is a real God, God needs man also, otherwise what is God good for if there are no believers?

Therefore, because man need God and God needs mankind to believe in God, it becomes a fair exchange, because both benefit from this exchange, that is why God and religions need to be the way that they are today, or at least we should try to keep them as close as possible the way they are, even if one day we have to make changes to keep religions in touch with the ever-changing needs of mankind.

Now that we have stated this need that we have for God and religions, we must add that sometimes we have doubts about God and religious, here we feel that our readers may have their doubts also, so, let us say something to our readers to make them understand that they don’t need to worry and read “for our readers’ peace of mind”, in our previous article.

Now, let us say what we would like to achieve.

-----------------------------------------------

Praying God's angels to help me

This is the opening poem of Prayers for reconciliation: You, angels of the realm of glory, you tell us about the eternal story, you tell us about the creator's glory, you tell us the wonders of God's creation.

What we would like to achieve

We are going to set the stage for the entire world to see.

And whoever will read these pages might have to agree.

That here we are trying to find a way to God for all humanity;

So that we could stay in touch with God-life-force for eternity

So, I am praying God our Father to guide and help me.

Therefore, I am writing and praying God for guidance.

---------------------------------------------

People need God and pray to God

People need God and pray to God, it has been so for a very long time, and there are times when I also pray God to help me. For us humans it is one of the most natural things to do.

Humanity needs to review religions

Since we believe that humanity needs to review religions; I am praying God for guidance

Our Father in heaven, to you I turn God Most High, and I start to pray with all my heart, my soul and my mind. In the name of The-Father The-Son and The-Holy Spirit I am praying, hoping that the ever-present guiding force of the Holy Spirit on earth would guide and help me; So, that I would be able to write these religious writing as humanly as possible according to your will. Father hear my prayer and guide me! Amen.

Now that I have prayed let us continue; you see, we have discussions about religions, whether there is a god or not that created the universe, and many other religious things. But that is not all, today religious happenings are strange, so, they cannot go on the way they are, it is obvious by following the news that mankind is using religions for their own personal advantage, or a small groups advantage and not for the entire world community, as it is supposed to be used.

So, in these religious writings we should try to explain, what is our point of view about God and religion? But first we must assume that God exists and then ask questions; for instance, why we find it hard to be good souls in God eyes and follow God’s ways? And finally suggest what is the best way for us to find our way back to the true existing living God.

Today, as we have seen from the previous articles that we have written. God as we have known for thousands of years is being attacked from atheists who are clever people in their own ways, so, we believe that it is only a matter of time before God and religions will need to change in order to survive. We know that this is the hardest thing to do for religions, because religions are beliefs and beliefs cannot change easily, if beliefs would change easily then those beliefs that you have believed in for so long are worth nothing. So, what could we do one may ask?

Answer; we may have to find a way, how we can link this present days religions to the future religions, which will be constructed in a way that they can bridge past, present and future religions, you may think that this is an outrageous idea, and that I am out of my mind to suggest it; but if you look at old religious beliefs and their history, then you will see that what we are suggesting here is not out of place, because religions have always slowly changed, so, there is nothing to be worried about, if they slowly start to change again, as long as these changes are made in a way that would be acceptable to the religious public.

What could we do then you may ask? And what sort of God or religion can achieve all that?

Perhaps it can work, if we believe that there is only one God throughout the universe, and this God is the life giver of the whole universe, so, we believe that God is the life giver to every living thing, therefore, there is a link between God and our life on earth, even if this extended belief is different from what the Bible is teaching us, it would still be a religious belief about God and this new link would be able to connect all religions together, we hope you see what we mean.

Now, let us assume that we can find a way how to make this new religious link, and with this new religious link we are able to link the past the present and the future of religions, so, they can work in harmony from the moment the public accepts them.

Anyhow, we must assume that because of this newfound link, which in realty has always existed; now that we have found it, we cannot assume that humanity can solve all religious problems and agree with each other all the time; because everything changes with the passing of time, and what is perfect today in the future may not be as perfect.

Let us look at some examples; for example, we believe that in the past God came down to earth, because in His mercy He wanted to help the Israelites, so, during that time God in his wisdom gave the Israelites this general rule called, the Ten Commandments for them to follow. Nowadays all the people that are connected to the Bible, or to a similar religion more or less follow these Commandments, but we are too many different people in this world and we have too many different ideas and rules, and a strict single rule can never satisfy us all, so, it could be a good idea to widen those rules, so that they can apply to the rest of the world, so that the rest of the world can live in harmony with each other as well.

-----------------------

Ways to religious reconciliation

I believe that we need to observe and learn, so, we can find the way for religious reconciliation. Reflecting on what we have said, we must admit that today God’s rules have been written as if they are heavenly driven; but we in this world find those rules hard to follow, because we are living on earth, therefore, we are earth bound. So, our task while we are writing them is to find a way how we can guide humanity closer to God’s ways, while at the same time, we should talk in an earthly way, so that humanity can understand us and follow our religious writings.

You see, during my life I have made my own observations, I have done that because I like to observe things, therefore, I have also made many religious observations, so, today I believe that I have found a sort of solution, since I have become aware of something that might help, and this theory that is now taking shape into my mind is important, because it can enlighten a bit more what seems so obscure to us now. So, we believe that it is worth to pass on what we have learned, for the benefit of all humanity.

Because we have become aware of this theory, which makes us believe that something can be done for the benefit of mankind, we have reasons to believe that God has made me dream an impossible dream, because to achieve this dream I have to try reaching, the unreachable stars; but at the same time, I feel as if there is an inner force that is driving me to do this.

Therefore, if we believe in God, then God may indeed let us reach the unreachable stars, and therefore, if I believe in God and pray God I should be able to fulfil this role and be able to write the religious theory, notwithstanding that I am not a trained writer; you see, I am only a self-taught writer, that wants to express, my personal religious views, hoping that you agree with me.

---------------------------------------------

Personal religious views

There are times when I feel very religious within myself, when that happens, I have this feeling that from the four corners of the universe, God is watching us closely. Although God is watching us from a distance nothing will escape God’s watchful eyes. Therefore, we can say that we ought to believe in God and follow his rules, because we are all going to get back from God what we personally deserve. What I have said, it is how I personally feel about God at this point of time.

Having said how I feel about God, now let me try to find what to do next: Here I must say that I have observed that what I want to do is a very difficult task, and from my observations I have concluded, that these religious writings should be written in two parts, which will enable me to deal with two points of view of the same subject in different ways.

The first point of view is to look closely at ourselves, and then look at the existing religious world and see where and why those religions are failing us.

Therefore, in the first part, we need to deal with the way of how people feel about religion, so that we can make up our mind, if we need religion and how much we need religion, then we must examine those existing religious, and if we find them not adequate to today’s needs, we’ll have to see what can be done to improve them, even if we must change whatever needs to be changed.

But that is now as easy as it sounds because of our natural instincts, since Mother Nature to keep us safe from all dangerous things during our lives, she made us suspicious, and she has implanted in us the will to survive, this will to survive makes us very suspicious of everything, therefore, we cannot accept everything that is being told to us, therefore, we have to go through a process in order to prove to ourselves that what is being said is good for us, and then and only then we will accept it.

The second point of view is to try to find a solution to the existing religious problems, which we believe we can do that with our religious theory, provided people accept our theory.

But first, let us see how and what can I write to the people, in order that they would accept this first point of view and believe in what we are saying to them.

So, in our next article will talk about these religious points of views?

See you soon.

May God bless us all?
