All about religions and spirituality
Our new religious set-up
Welcome to our article (89) New religious set up
Dear readers, the existing religious articles that we have written, they want first to explain the reasons why religions need to be modified, and then, why we need to modify religions, so, they are unintentionally set in a way, that takes too much time to explain. So, we believe that it is better if we choose some articles that seem more important and publish them in a shortened setup.
Anyhow, to shorten our religious discussions, we should start looking at today religious problems, because today problems, have given me this idea, of suggesting a new religious way that can benefit everybody.
Now let me explain, in my mind I had already some religious ideas, which I wanted to discuss; but everything became alive and linked to September 11- 2001 when that dreadful terrorist event took place in USA, that seems to have changed the world forever; for this reason, my religious ideas that I had in my mind made more sense.
Now, because of that violent terrorist event, and other violent events that have followed it, I started thinking, what can be done to stop these violent happenings; and I thought of suggesting a new religious way, since the most violent events are linked to religious beliefs.
Now, the terrorists that carried out that terrorist event were religious fanatics, that is how it was reported in the news of the entire western world. Anyhow, it was upsetting for all religious believer, to think that religions can make people kill other people, in the name of their God and religions.
I was upset too, I remember that I could not believe that this was possible, that they did it in the belief that they would go to paradise and be rewarded from God.
Of course, we Christian do not believe that they will go to paradise, but they will go to Hell, because they have killed human beings. So, in our religious theory that we are writing, we want to show the world, why they must go to hell. You see, we believe that every living thing is part of God, and God does not want to kill his own life.
Anyhow, this terrible happening and other terrible happenings that happen in the name of God, they cannot be true. Because it is not possible that God and religions have been made to kill people; so, we must ask ourselves, whether religions are a set of rules, these rules are manmade and therefore they can be changed, whenever there is this need to change them.
Humanity and religions
I believe that we need to talk about humanity and God, since humanity uses God as they like, and at the same time, they want us to believe that it is God’s will; so, they do the nasty things, and then blame God for it. Their attitude is out of place with what religions must be like. And because, we believe that God is life and He must not want to kill his own life, so, he cannot come at the level of these crazy people.
Anyhow, here we want to discuss how people use God, and they want to use God to their advantage, which is not right. So, the atheists in this case may be right to say that it is better if God did not exist. However, we need God as we have explained in, Man needs God.
As we have said, religions are man-made, so, they can be changed and there is no harm in doing that. Therefore, we should forget that God is sitting up there like a tyrant and is punishing us if we don’t do his will. When we do not even know what God’s-will is, because we humans have invented God’s will ourselves.
You see, man has made religions to suite themselves, if you look at religions, you will see, that all civilizations have had their own gods, who will help them the way they wanted. So, here I want to describe the God that we need today, to help us put an end to those religious fanatics, that use religions to kill other people.
Today humanity need a Super-God that can connect all religions together, a God that does not take part and chooses only a group of people, while he leaves others people behind, a God that looks after all living human beings as equals, we need a God that is benevolent, and compatible with today advanced human thinking.
Our beliefs are that this God must exist, since we believe that God is life, and the spiritual life force energies of the universe, and this God guides the entire life force of the universe. Now as there are no ways that this God can be described easily, we want to add here, that this God is a benevolent God that loves all existing life. Our description of God is in our religious writings of, ‘Reconciliation of the universe’ where we are describing, all the spiritual force of the universe.
All about God or no God
Theist versus Atheist
Now, apart from the terrorist attacks, there are other religious issues. Anyhow, I was taking part in discussions in a forum called, ‘Theist vs. Atheist’, and I was thinking how religions would survive the atheist’s attacks. Those discussions led me to believe, there are a lot of things in religions that are not correct, therefore, even the religious book of the Bible has mistakes in it, as I found out and explained in my articles of ‘Prayers for Reconciliation.
Anyhow, suddenly the terrorist attack brought another argument, that the atheists can use against religious believers. Now the atheist can claim that religions do more harm than good, so, what can the believers say to defend themselves; when they are being attacked from both sides.
Anyhow, these happenings made me think, the atheists can attack religious believer, because we the Christian believer are sitting ducks, we believe in the same way that we have been told to believe, whether they are right or wrong, so, it becomes easier to attack us, because the atheists are able to forecast our reactions of their religious attacks, since we the believer have a set of rules to follow.
So, I asked myself. What about if the boundary of religious beliefs, were to be expanded in a different way? Would then the atheists be able to attack us? Or would they stop attacking us because they cannot forecast the outcome?
That is the reason why, I have continued to read religious books, to understand better what our human needs are; here we have found that we need religions, as we have explained in our article, Man needs God, but there are other reasons too.
What I have written above, are some of the reasons why I have been writing about religions. Now I am going to take a philosophical approach and restart writing about religions from the beginning.
We need to discuss our ideas
This is philosophy
Anyhow, we need to solve our religious problems, so, what we are going to write here is a philosophical way of discussions, that aims to solve our religious problems. You see, we want to discuss religions, using philosophical discussion.
The reason for doing this, it is because philosophy gives us more freedom of speech, whereas religions have set rules, so, sometimes we are going to double talk between religions and philosophy.
Because we are in search of a Super-God, that can overcome most of the existing religious problems that we have today; we are having a philosophical discussion about two possible gods, that could work better in the future for all religions. Now let us see how we can describe these two super gods that have the best attribute to overcome what needs to be overcome.
The universe is God or spiritualty
Consider these two Gods
To overcome those religious needs that needs to be overcome; we are trying to explain religions and why humanity has religions, since humanity has always believed in some deities or spiritual existence.
Anyhow, we believe that God exists, as we have written in the article, God exists because life exists, and we are continuing to prove God existence. But our ‘God of the universe’ is different from the present beliefs, so, let us see what God can be like, to make sense to the believers, we need to compare and choose one of the following; because I believe that there are at least two ways available to us. So, let us see these God possibilities:
First God possibility;
God is the entire universe and everything that exists in the universe, so, God is everywhere and is everything, we live within God and are part of God, therefore, the natural laws are god laws; a God like this by default can be accepted by everybody, because God represents every physical and spiritual thing in the universe, therefore, God exists because the universe exists.
If we accept a God that is everything, then this god by default can do everything, you see whatever happens, it happens because God made it happen; however this is not the God that humanity is searching for, because humanity wants a god like a person that guides and helps them, if they need help; even if that is just a belief.
Having described this first god possibility, it is obvious that this god cannot fulfil our human desires, so, it cannot be accepted as a super God, that is able to link all other existing gods and religions together and solve the present religious problem.
But let us separate the physical universe from the spiritual universe, to see, if this spiritual God can fulfil better what we are looking for, in a Super-God?
Second god possibility
As we have said, we are looking for a benevolent Super-God, that can link all existing gods and religions, not only that, but this Super-God must fulfil our human desire and expectations. These human desires are written in most of our present existing religions, but these religions have been written in a way that represent the time when they were written.
In the old time most communities for safety reasons had to be self-sufficient, so, they believed in isolating themselves against outsiders; for this reason, religious texts were written in a way that they could become isolated; so, they did not trust each other; but today we need a God that links all religion together, to overcome isolation and terrorism. Now, let us see if the spiritual god that we have in mind, could be our Super-God that we are looking for.
We know, that the spiritual Super-God is better, because we have written about this God in our article of, Reconciliation of the Universe, but, what we have written is not finished, so, we need to edit and write more religious and philosophical articles.
Anyhow, I believe that I have said enough in this article, so, we will see you in our next article, which will be about our spiritual beliefs, and talk about collective spiritual beliefs, perhaps this is an easier way to achieve our religious aim; see you soon!
May God bless us all.
Some religious links
- Prayers for Reconciliation
Prayers for Reconciliation starts a religious theory that aims to save religions from atheism and extremist groups, it aims to achieve that by suggesting some modifications to existing religions, etc.
- Prayers of Reconciliation
Prayers of Reconciliation, I come to you praying Father Most High and eternal life giver of every living thing, I am praying thee for forgiveness of my sins and reconciliation.. People prayers to God.
- God of the universe
This is our theory of God of the Universe within the life cycle of the universe; God is the positive and constructive life force that guides the universe residing at the center or at the top of it.

That sounds like a great plan to me!

Hi, Say Yes To Life, thanks for commenting, I don't know why you find it hard to understand it, but let me state my general aim and I feel sure that then it is going to be a lot easier to understand it.
The aim of these religious writings is that of slowly eliminating the extremist groups, like the atheists and the extremist groups of using religions for their own advantages, by suggesting a new way of religious beliefs, at the same time religions remain the same, but it would become harder for the extremist group to use religions, because of the way they are going to be designed. I hope this is going to help you understand my point of view.

This hub is interesting, though I admit I have a hard time understanding it.
All religions are man-made. They are human attempts to understand how the world works, explain the unexplainable, and how to live the best life. That is what they all have in common. Some are monotheistic, like the Abrahamic religions; some are polytheistic, like many folk religions (Hindu, Shinto), and some don't rely on any deities, like Buddhism or Confucianism.
No religion answers ALL questions, which is why we must be accepting of them. Islam currently holds center stage for violence, because they want everyone to believe they have all the answers. However, since all religions are man-made, there can be no perfect one. Any that tries to pass of as being that is a CULT.
