Pope Francis is trying hard to solve today religious problems
My religious life beliefs
Welcome to our article (115) religious life beliefs
Dear readers, today am writing my religious life beliefs about God and religions, because they have become modified from my original beliefs. You see, during our lives, things happen that forces us willingly or unwillingly to change our point of view. Now, our points of view, can be political, personal or spiritual. Anyhow, today I am going to write about religion and spiritual things, and how they fit in with our everyday life. I believe that if everyone contributes something, by writing and putting forward our personal beliefs, then, one day the world can become a better place. So, let me start to write something that I believe could be helpful in the future.
I said that this could be helpful in the future, because if everyone of us try to do our part, all that knowledge put together would indeed help make the difference. To do that I believe that we must start by looking at the entire world, and those things that happen during our lives, if we do that, then we will understand what is needed to live a better life.
Anyhow, here we want to look at spiritual and religious things, and how these religious things affect our ways of living. So, let us talk about what we believe and the generations before us believed, most of us believe and have believed in God. We should assume that people that believe in different religions, they believe in their God, or gods and their spiritual things. I believe that this is happening because of our inner need to believe in God.
What we have said is obvious when we look at any civilizations, they all had their own religions, sometimes like our own and sometimes completely different, but all religions work, when people believe in those beliefs. Therefore, we should assume that all religions have spiritual connection, and for this reason they cannot be false, so, there must be a way where they connect to the central spiritual God of the universe. Since we believe that God of the universe is the universal spiritual force that links everything together.
You see, if we believe that we have a soul, then it follows that the spiritual life exists, and therefore God exists. If we believe that we don’t have a soul, we must believe that no spiritual things exist and God does not exist, which it is unacceptable to humanity, since history shows that man needs to believe in God. Now let us see how we can describe this God of the universe.
Describing God of the universe
To describe God of the universe is not going to be easy, because God is a spiritual entity, therefore, we cannot see God, but we can only imagine God in his spiritual capacity. Now, God has been described in many ways from many religions, but the description of God is different from one another, at the same time there are similarities. So, we should look at these similarities to describe how God can be. In fact, we may even think that God is life, therefore God is in every living think.
Now, let us assume that we have found a way how to describe God, next step is how we can describe God that everybody can accept. It is necessary that we find a God description that everybody accepts, because that is the only way that would fulfil our needs, you see, the reason why religions at times fight each other, it is because they are somehow different, because they see their God fulfilling a different role.
To tell you the truth, I have had a few discussions about this issue, the last discussion was what one Hub-Pages author and follower said. He put forward this idea that if we could use this phrase that pope Francis had said in a speech, on every page of the Bible, it would help stop the violence. Here I am going to quote this phrase; “Violence by man against man is in contradiction with any religion worth of that name” Pope Francis January 18, 2016.
I thought, it could be helpful, but it could not cross the boundary of other world religions, so, I suggested my own phrase and way, which is as follow:
The phrases we are suggesting here, can be helpful, they can also be mixed with other phrases, but for me personally, what I would like to say is this phrase, on every page of every religious book;
“There is only one God throughout the universe”
Of course, this is not enough ether, because it needs an explanation. So, it should be followed by a longer explanation like this, written at the beginning or at the end of every religious book, so that the people can understand what we mean by that phrase, now, let me describe this future description of God that this phrase wants to describe;
THE FUTURE POSSIBLE 'UNIVERSAL GOD' DESCRIPTION:
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE. AND GOD IS THE LIFE ESSENCE OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
Everything that is living in the universe, is there because it is part of God-life-itself: So, nothing alive can exist without being part of God, just because God is life itself: Therefore, God is the life essence of the entire universe.
No living man should or could ever pretend to kill in God’s name, because in doing so he would be killing a tiny part of life, which would be a tiny part of God himself, and therefore, he has committed a sin against God and God of the universe spiritual life force, including himself, because he has destroyed a human life.
Now, this description of God needs explanation, which I will try to explain here-under
God is an imaginary spiritual positive energy that can help us.
Explaining my religious views
I know that what I have said above is only my view of God, since most religions don’t see God the way I am describing Him; therefore, I may have trouble to make believe that this God can exist. But then again, God is the way we believe He is, since God may not even exist, but God exists in our minds the way we see God, which could be different, from what somebody else believes.
Well even this explanation is not right, because the reality is that we need to believe in God, even if one day God turn out to be only a spiritual life force that guides the universe, or something like that.
But, because of the violent acts of the terrorist today, we are looking for a God that can guide humanity in a more peaceful way, therefore, we would like to describe a god that can achieve that, which in a way the God we have described above, could come close enough to our needs, so, I should let be the way it is.
Anyhow, I am going to work on it, and see if I can find a better way. You know, as I said at the beginning of this article, our beliefs including religious beliefs become modified from out life experiences. So, even what I have written above can become modified, if one day it needs to be modified.
Now, since I believe that I have explained some religious problems, and this article is long enough, since most people prefer to read short stories. I will stop writing right it, so, I will continue to write about religion in our next article; Religions of today and my views.
See you soon.
