Religious concerns, 17
There are many religions in the world, what is shown here are the main religions grouped together
People religious concerns
Welcome to our hub (17), People religious concerns
May God guide and help me to say the right things in these religious writings?
We the religious people who believe in God and religions should be really concerned about what is happening in the religious world of today, these concerns that we are talking about here are real, today we know a lot more that we used to know before, because of the simple facts that we can easily follow what is happening in the world today through the news, therefore we should have been able to come up with a solution to the religious problems that we see around us today, but this does not seem to happen and if it is happening at all, it is in a very small way.
We just have to look at the news, and we will see, that there are still many religious problems today, perhaps they are hiding under another name or form, they might not be as extreme as the inquisition, when religions were out of control and they did a lot of harm to those people that were not following them blindly, so some very good people were burned at stake just because they believed or said things that did not agree with the religious beliefs, that the clergy believed to be right at the time. Just for this reason, they caused a lot of harm to these non- believers, just because they did not believe, what they believed and it was a great mistake; in fact, it was a terrible mistake that the religious people that took part, should have been ashamed of themselves, if only they would have known, what they were doing.
Today the Christian religions have become more moderate, but some harmful practices are still there, we have to admit that today religions seem to be arguing with each other, perhaps to a lesser degree than when they used to hate each other say more than fifty years ago, but they still keep going on and don’t trust each other much, when they should be trying to live in peace with each other; so the question is what we need to do to make religions friendlier with each other? If we think about it religions must first of all fulfil the role of being merciful and friendly, because if they cannot do that then they become useless, so it is time that religious leader work on this issue, in the hope that one day they can reach some sort of agreement and become completely tolerant to each other. We would like to suggest that all religions should be looking for a starting point, where all religions have the same religious beliefs in common. We believe that we would be able to suggest how this could be achieved, when we write, reconciliation of the universe.
Anyhow, we the people of this world should be concerned, because the way religious people behave sometimes is shocking, how can it be explained that somebody kills somebody else in the name of God and religions; is this worse than the Cristian inquisition? And then also, how can we explain that in the Roman Catholic Church the priests are supposed to be pure as a virgin, but they are not, and then not only we find that they might have a sexual partner and worst of all we find that they are paedophiles, which is the lowest of the sexual crimes, and many other things that don’t add up in religions the way they should?
All, or part of these happenings might be due to the fact that there are many religions in this world, their beliefs are not the same and some of them hate each other, they also promise many things but deliver very little in this world, and if there is anything to be delivered is going to happen after one dies, which is going to be impossible to prove, no matter how hard we try, so it is very likely an empty promise.
Today main religious problem
We have said above that the Christian religions have changed for the better lately, so they have a more tolerant view of everything put together, as they only preach religious things and how we would look in the eyes of God when we sin. But what about the other religions, to see part of what we are saying, you just look at the sketch on this page and you will see what we mean when we say that there are many religions, therefore we are concerned.
I would like to say that today we should be very concerned, because while I am editing this article what is happening in the religious world is shocking; this time it is not the Roman Catholic clergy that goes out to kill people, but it is the Islamic State that kills people just because they are not Muslims like themselves and for many other reasons, they don’t even try to put them on trial, they just kill them, even the most innocent people could be killed this way. So this is another main reason why we should find a way that makes religions more tolerant and friendly to each other, and above all, we should be tolerant if people do not believe what we believe, therefore this is what we are trying to put forward in these religious writings.
So, we should be concerned about the many existing religions and what needs to be done, to make them more friendly to each other and to all humanity; for this reason I am personally concerned because even though I know that mankind needs to believe in God and religions; it still concerns me if I want to start talking against the present religious trend in case I get it wrong, but then again I am thinking that we have to make a start sometimes, so I am trying to review mentally what we already know, and then try to fit all religions in a way that could make them friendlier and therefore be able to serve humanity better.
For instance we know that man needs God and perhaps God needs man also, we know that there are already all these existing religious beliefs, which in a way fulfil most of those needs which mankind really needs; but for me those existing religious beliefs are not enough and they need to be more consistent with each other, because as we have said there are many things that don’t work the way they should, so I believe that we need to try to upgrade religions in a way that they will still be accepted from most believers and at the same time, they would become more friendly with each other’s, and at the same time might help to control better the priests that are paedophile, and above all suggest a way that even the Muslims and the atheist might accept, but all this is not going to be easy so it concerns me even how to start, but we need to start somehow; so what we would like to achieve, one may ask?
WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE WITH THESE RELIGIOUS WRITINGS
We are going to set the stage for the entire world to see,
And when you read these pages you might have to agree,
That this could be the golden door of golden opportunities,
That God would be willing to give to us and to all humanity.
Therefore, I am praying God to help and guide me.
So here, I pray God to help me,
My Lord God, I pray you to guide and help me, since I am really concerned about what I am going to write here, I am concerned in case I make mistakes, but at the same time I know that something needs to be done, so I pray you Father to help me,
Father, hear my prayer, amen.
We are studying religions
You see, what we are doing here is a sort of study of religions and what can be done about them to make them work the way they should. For this reason I am praying God to guide me, because, just by thinking about what we would like to write in these religious writings to achieve what we would like to achieve I feel very concerned, because in order to say and achieve what we want to say and achieve, we have to break free from some very old religious traditions, which for centuries and even thousands of years have been observed very closely from most religious leaders and believers. So, for me/us to come out suddenly and break free from the old religious traditions would be shocking to everybody that knows these religious things to say the least. Therefore, for this very reason I am also concerned that the whole world may hate me for writing what I am writing and what I am going to write next, and for this same reason they may not accept these new religious views easily, until they will realize that in the future they have to change and there might be no other way out. Now this does not mean that they have to accept what I am writing here, they may have their own ways of dealing with this, but the fact remains that religious changes are needed to achieve that.
Therefore, first and foremost we have to be strong in our own beliefs if we have to write them, and we have to believe that it is God’s will that we have to write these religious writings, since we feel that God has sown in us this seed of wanting to write them. So, I pray God to help me and guide me in this hard task.
In order to give an explanation to the present state of religious things, I am inclined to believe that the reasons for the present religious traditions for being as they are and for being left unchanged for so long has been because people have always had a great fear to change them. Of course without a doubt there have been good reasons not to change them until now, and there have been also many reasons of convenience not to change them until nowadays.
But as we all know, there is a right time and a wrong time for doing anything, and even though in the past it would have been right not to change any of these religious traditions, today it would be wrong not to modify and change or upgrade religions at all, not only to solve the problems that we have mentioned above, but also for other reasons that even today might not be so obvious, so let us talk about the reasons for religious change.
The reasons for religious change
Let us try to review and explain the reasons for these religious changes
Because today old religious traditions start looking a bit strange, because today we start viewing everything different in our mind eyes, the reason why we have this different view it is because we perceive things in a different way, and the reason for perceiving things in a different way it is because in today’s world things are changing very rapidly compared to the old times, and this is also changing our way of thinking and perceiving things.
In the past people would go to church on Sunday and listen to the sermon being preached, and then we would go home and think about it for a while, so we really believed what was being preached to us, as there was no other source for religious knowledge to compare to what the preacher had said that day; but today it is different, all sorts of news are readily available, we are able to learn and compare many things, so our views may change because of what we have learned. All these changes that are taking place now are going to change even faster in the future, one of the reasons for these changes happening faster than usual has been brought about by the computer; and we know that the computer is here to stay; therefore, changes may happen even faster in the future, we feel sure that these changes are going to take place in the near future.
Therefore, if we think about it and make use of our intelligent minds to reflect about what’s really happening now, we will begin to understand that with the passing of time everything will change even those things that for a very long time we believed could never change and would never change. Therefore, today we find ourselves in a position that needs adjustment for the future and this includes also existing religious beliefs and religious orders:
So, in order to make the right adjustments everything should be reviewed and adjusted to suit the present time and also the future times; otherwise soon or later the existing old religious ways would not make any real sense to the present world generations and even less sense to the future generations. Now, if religion does not make good sense to the believers they would not believe in religion any longer, and therefore there is a good chance that they could even abandon religions altogether.
Here again it is the availability of knowledge from many sources and above all from the computer that brings these changes about. In order to explain this situation better let us just imagine how everything was done in the past. You see, in the past not many people could even read, and for those that were able to read it was a good chance that they never had a bible that they could read, so everything was left to the priests that had to follow their own ways of the church, that is the reason why nothing has happened for centuries.
Today everything is very different and most people can read and write, they can also use the computer to search for anything that they would like to know, so knowledge has changed in favour of the simple people, because now just about anybody can learn how things really are, instead of the few people that in order to control the people, they would go along and use the same ways that their forefathers used to control the people. I hope you see what we mean here. For these reasons we believe that in the future religions are going to be modified, so let us talk about these future religions and how they could be modified and why.
The future of religions
Looking for the future of religions; having said and reviewed what we have said above, we have reasons to believe that the time is coming very rapidly when existing religious beliefs cannot stay any longer as they are now, and those persons like me who believe in God and religion have got to do something about it, like putting a new religious theory in place to ensure that religious beliefs last forever if it is possible, as we said in our previous articles Religions are spiritual eternal beliefs, we know that man needs God, and also God is hope for those that need hope most, therefore religions are needed and are here to stay.
These actions that we may have to take now are becoming necessary in order to secure the future for religions, even if we find it hard to modify religions now. We need to do this soon enough, because human evolution has reached a very advanced stage, and I dare say that humanity these days start to question the present religious system very much, because nowadays we are living in the age of reason, where the human mind helped by the computer perceives and understand lots more things than we used to understand in the past, and through these extra understanding that we have gained, we often like to believe that our minds can guide us to overcome anything in our way with or without God’s help.
Then as we have said we are also living in the age of the computer, which enable us to learn things a lot faster than ever before. Because of this computer devise some of the people on earth are becoming very learned and intellectually advance faster than ever before, and through this acquired knowledge, they sometimes ask themselves what’s the use of religion nowadays, because they are able to perceive that these existing religious traditions don’t fit very well the needs of the people in nowadays world; therefore, it might happen that a leading group of people may be formed and part of this leading group of people are not fast religious believers, then they may have a point to say that religious traditions have become useless beliefs. You see, this is one of the reasons why there are atheist’s groups today.
So, in order to avoid this happening to religions, and we the believes ruin ourselves in the eyes of God, we who believe in God and religion as it is now and as it has been for a very long time, and perhaps from the beginning of times, today we know that we need to do something about it, because it is obvious that we need to modify religions and make religions fit the needs of this present generation and also the future generations.
Therefore, here we are studying and trying to find a way to achieve these religious modifications without upsetting anybody; we need to do this step by step and link everything together, because only if we are able to link all existing religions together, we will be able to save religions mostly the way they are now. May God help us?
May God bless us all?
