I 1st want to insert that these are entirely my views and views, and of course I could be entirely improper on them. Not that I believe it’s mistaken to automatically be wrong but rather I do not would like to mislead anybody (from a conscience point of view), as who is aware, I could be mistaken on my perspectives but they make sense to me.
So, what is religion?
Well, there are different religions out there. Some of the frequent ones are Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, among the a lot of other religions out there. Many of these religions believe in a “supernatural power” (God). Whilst I do not recognize the depth in each belief, I realize the fundamentals. For illustration, in Christianity there are laid out guidelines (and commandments) that a single have to adhere to as instructed by God or interpreted as such probably afterwards on.
Numerous men and women do certainly feel that is mentioned in the bible of their faith is correct and of course, it is understandable, and some of it might effectively be. But, in my impression, not all of it is entirely accurate (even from a rational perspective).
Well we initial need to have to talk about rules and commandments. There are rules and commandments in place that established predefined guidelines human beings want to comply with as what is considered to be instructed by God. These rules (and/or commandments) are there to make us abide by what we imagine are good requirements and morals. Nonetheless, the inherent issue is that these principles and commandments are restrictive and trigger fear between many men and women – specifically the younger generation. The very first query to ponder is, if God is love (and only love), does he (or she) want us to be in fear to make certain we by no means crack the rules as set forth in the holy bible? Do you believe in God is more akin to a rational issue and it is. Definitely, if God is really like, God would not want us to be in concern of performing anything mistaken, and would comprehend (to the most significant point of view possible) if we make problems in this life time of ours?
What about “free of charge will”?
Have you ever heard the saying “only if the spirit is prepared”, and probably this is referring to the mantra over free will. I don’t feel God can in fact force anybody to do anything at all, even other men and women in Heaven as well that have handed more than. We all have cost-free will, if we failed to, God would of stopped a lot of the negative activities that happen on this Earth by us human beings and other animals. The truth is, in my opinion, free will is truly essential in get to allow an individual to freely find out. If God interfered and stopped you creating a error, how are you likely to find out about it then? God and people in Heaven could know we’re making errors in our daily life, and could consider and support manual us in the right course, but of program, they are unable to pressure us as we all have free will to do what we want regardless of whether right or improper. The only thing we can really go by is what we perceive is correct and mistaken as an individual and also from a human materialistic viewpoint.
And, to be sincere, I will not think God even judges folks. When we hear the word judging, it’s how we understand judging from the eyes that we see: other human beings. God and people in Heaven that kindly support God support other folks see it differently. They see the entire photograph. If they never see the entire photo of a circumstance, they’d be becoming unfair in the direction of a certain individual that probably could have done bad routines in their lifestyle. So, God surely, from a reasonable viewpoint, have to see it from the greatest and truest photograph possible? And would God realize? Effectively, according to the bibles, God is aware all, so surely he would? Does God have an moi like we have? I do not feel he does: we’re in human sort, God and other men and women in Heaven will not, given that they have now passed more than and are no more time in human (actual physical) sort.
So, does punishment take place in Heaven?
I have a tough time envisioning punishment happening by God, authorized by God (from a permissive context) since Heaven is a place of really like, kindness, respect and fact, and that is what God is as nicely. Of training course God cares about us all, and we all have that interior need to be that as nicely. Even individuals that have passed in excess of and dedicated extremely poor actions on Earth are cared for and God and other folks in Heaven would constantly want them again to assist them.
But you may possibly be pondering, “but why? They have committed really bad deeds on Earth!”, well sure which is real and confident, it is “improper” but what has occurred has transpired, they are incredibly bad mistakes. Occasionally many negative routines on Earth arise because of to inherent psychological problems, inherent genetic variations, parental upbringing, setting variables (these kinds of as surrounding region, folks, friends, and many others) – lots and tons of variables! But the fact is, if God doesn’t let any individual the time to seek out help and support by other folks in Heaven, there is no way to development for that person. It really is not like we can be destroyed like we can on Earth in human form when we die we are merely strength (our thoughts/mind/us), and you can’t ruin vitality. So, surely, God cares enough to try out and assist a person realize, forgive them self and consider and assist manual them on the proper keep track of? This is yet another reasonable standpoint that I consider is fairly appropriate.
So, does even punishment exist in Heaven?
I do not think it does. Once again, if God or somebody else in Heaven punishes one particular particular person that has dedicated negative activities on Earth, then there that is towards the logic and truth of adore and kindness, and is much more akin to what we do on Earth when we’re indignant. As you get larger spiritually in Heaven, much less probably factors would make you indignant as you become wiser and recognize a lot more.
Yet again, I might like to remind other individuals that this is basically my viewpoint, and everyone is welcome to have their possess viewpoint on what they think is right and wrong. And I just want to make this distinct as it is simply my point of view and I want everybody to be conscious of that (I would hate to mislead any individual, individually). But it appears sensible and correct to me, and so this is why I wrote this write-up to categorical my viewpoint on this matter).
I might just like to share one particular final issue though. The world just isn’t the ideal of areas correct now and I consider numerous of the problems are man-made (well, in simple fact, most of them are), and needs a gentleman-manufactured resolution. I do hope (as I am positive hundreds of thousands of other folks do) that 1 day the world will be a greater place. And of system folks that see it from a greater perspective and imagine that their viewpoints and views can be executed on a government amount to carry modify is not going to ever have the chance to make that modify arise due to the fact of how issues stand at the second, we have to hope factors will adjust for the better. There is a whole lot of ignorance in this globe people becoming egotistical and selfish, and is not in the ideal curiosity of other people. Being selfish and egotistical can immediately guide to ignorance and vice versa, and men and women want to realise about what they can result in by their actions thanks to ignorance, misunderstanding, selfishness and egotistical conduct. Of training course, we’ve all been there, done that, got the sticker but when there are times when we know we can do much better, possibly we must consider and act in a different way that, you in no way know, could conserve an argument happening, a misunderstanding or a dispute occurring – what ever. There are numerous smart prices from several individuals that have when lived on Earth of course not all of them are going to make perception to us from our viewpoint proper now (or at all ever in our lifestyle, as not all quotes may possibly automatically be real), but I actually think if we comply with our heart, attempted to be as real to ourselves as we can, was not as ignorant as we currently are and attempt to assist other people when we can, certainly the planet could be a better location (in some type or yet another – who understands)? The planet just isn’t a wonderful area for several of us, and several of the people living on Earth appropriate now are struggling. Lifestyle is not honest and we all know it (most of us, anyway). But often hold your head high and never ever allow any person let you to endure or put you down!
I genuinely hope this post has assisted a person. Irregardless of variances in impression, I hope you have a great 12 months (and a lot of a long time) ahead!
My identify is Ben Stones. While I am largely intrigued in technology (I am obsessive with personal computers, software and all issues engineering!) I am also intrigued in spiritualism and believe in it profoundly. Most of the values I think in spiritualism are values that I individually believe in and are the values I stand for, personally (every person is various right after all).
