Our religious beliefs

MAN NEEDS GOD. We believe that, there is only one God throughout the universe and God is the universal life force that guides and gives life to the entire universe. Therefore every living thing is part of God life force, since God is the essence of all life in the universe, for this reason no living thing can exist without God life force.
Welcome to our blog, Man needs God
and this post, Our religious beliefs

We believe in the existing churches services and beliefs

We believe in the Holy Spirit of God who is the life giver of the entire universe.

 Our religious beliefs

What and why religious beliefs are important to us?
Mankind religious beliefs are those beliefs that we carry in our heart and mind. If we look at religious history, we will find that since the beginning of recorded times there were all sorts of religious beliefs, so, religion is a belief that mankind sought very early since the very beginning of known times, therefore, it would be right to assume that we have been searching since then for a reason why we are living here on earth, and even now we are still searching for that very same reason, and also for the creator of all living things including our lives.
So, some of us believe in creation, but here I have to say also that not everybody believes in creation and that there is a creator; because, some of us are still looking for that life-force that made life possible on earth including ourselves. Anyhow we have been searching and this endless searching throughout our lives has brought about to our present day religious beliefs, whether they are right or wrong we do not know?
Our religious beliefs are based on the fact that we want to know and acknowledge our own existence and from there we start asking questions. So the first thought that would come into our mind is that we ask ourselves, what’s the meaning of our life on earth?
This question brings up many more questions and also many doubts like: How and when our forbear’s lives started? Why are we living here on earth? Who gave us our lives? Is there really a god who gave us our lives? And if God is our life-giver what’s the meaning for us being here? And then again there are many doubts because what we have been taught from our forbears sometimes does not stand up to logic reasoning, so we keep asking questions hoping that one day we will know the answers.
What I have written above are the most eternal questions which mankind has always asked since we became homo sapient, so we really would like to know the answers to these questions. But up to nowadays it seems to me that a large portion of people are not satisfied at all, with the many religious explanations which they have received so far, so, they feel that they have been left with some doubts in their minds.
These doubts that we have about our beliefs may be due to the fact that we would like those religious explanations to run in a parallel way with our own thinking, as we will always compare those explanations with the knowledge that we have acquired ourselves nowadays, and therefore those explanations are not always satisfactory.
Nowadays most of us have been led to believe that God or the life-force that made life possible on earth resides in heaven, and we call this life-force God our Father or God Almighty and many other names. But most of mankind believes in this life-force in a slightly different way, therefore we are still searching for consensus about a single universal life force capable of creating, or helping to create our life on earth; so, if one day we are able to find consensus about our beliefs, then mankind will be better off for it. Because then mankind will not have any reasons to fight or argue about religious beliefs, and they would also be in a better position to follow God’s ways, because then they could make a collective effort to follow God’s life-force, so to speak.
Dear readers, I suppose you have already noted that sometimes I refer to God as a life force in the universe, I am doing this because that is the only way to get all existing religions together, you see a life force that somehow helps to create life is more acceptable to all parties concerned than my God or your God, I hope you see what I mean?

Explaining my position as a writer

Explaining my position as a writer of these religious writings
Dear reader I need to tell you this, before I continue writing about my personal religious beliefs; because I would like to inform you first of all and make this point very clear that I need to explain to you how I understand the Bible: because I would like to point out to you that within my writings of my future religious beliefs, it might sometimes seem to you as if I am wanting to rewrite part of the Bible; but it is not going to be that way at all, as I want only to explain to you how I see the Bible, so, I can assure you that it is not my intention to change anything. Because the Bible is the Bible and it is supposed to be written according to God’s own inspiration, or at least according to God’s inspiration at the time it was written? Therefore I do not intend to change anything at all not even a word, as it would be exactly right the way it has been written: But readers are warned that they have to make certain allowances, in order to understand the old Bible properly the way it has been written.
But there is a problem with mankind religious beliefs when one reads the Bible today, because one has to keep in mind, that, the style in which the various writers have written the Bible represents the times and the places and the needs of those days when the Bible was written; one needs also to keep in mind the capacity of the writers of that period and how they could express themselves openly, as they had to do it with what was the general knowledge of those times, it also had to be written in a way that the general public of those days could understand what the writers meant. Therefore for me and also for anybody else, to change anything written in the Bible would be wrong, not only because the Bible is at least partly God inspired, but also because it would interfere greatly with the general understanding of those times.
So, in order to understand the Bible properly nowadays, the modern readers have to leave behind their greater knowledge of nowadays, and imagine themselves to be at the same level of awareness as the writers and the people of those ancient times. Otherwise there would be usually a problem when people read the Bible today, and then try to compare it with today’s knowledge and values, and therefore they will be shocked that not everything is the way that one expects them to be. Having said that it does not mean that we have to accept what the Bible says with no reserve, but we have to look at ourselves and ask ourselves, if we had to write the Bible ourselves today what we would have changed? And also what sorts of theories we would put in place, so that the main stream would accept them?
Anyhow, there may also be another problem because some readers believe that only what’s written in the Bible is right, and everything else has got to be wrong: But they are making a great mistake, because they fail to see that the writer of those days could only write and express themselves in what they knew and was common knowledge of those days as I have said above, and therefore nowadays because we are more advanced, we understand a lot more about common knowledge, so there are events and also some expressions that might not make any sense to us at all.
Later on in my religious writings and in my writings of ‘Reconciliation of the Universe’, I would like to explain a bit more how I understand the Bible, and why some subjects are written the way that they have been written. Then I believe that I should try to make everything good at the end, by explaining that it could have been different, if a modern writer would have written that Bible subject: Therefore that part of the Bible that may seem to be misunderstood in my writings, is the way that I believe a writer would have written the Bible if he had to start writing it today.
Then there is also the fact that I have my own religious theory, which I am calling, Reconciliation of the Universe, it is something that I have been carrying in my soul, my heart and in my mind, and I believe that it could help to bring people back to believe in God and religion in the future therefore I have to try to put everything together and write that down, and pray that God will help me to do it the right way. Father, hear my prayer.
