Godseeker30 here. Regarding your questions about religion and God, personally, I don't believe that those in the crusades, who were killing others in the name of God were doing it for God but because they were mislead. That is my personal opinion. Regarding other questions you had about is religion or faith very real, it is, just read some of the parables in the Bible if ya have a chance, if you're not sure if it's real or not. The bible is man written, but God had inspired these people to write, what He wanted them to write, so if God did, then He musta had a reason right???
Hello, you said in a previous post of yours ........
[[[ Generally speaking, whenever I have to go out somewhere, or am looking for work, or even going back to church, I have to ask God's Holy Spirit, to give the added strength and courage, to face my aggressors, or those who would wish me harm. Just praying this, is what I've found has really helped me, through difficult times:) I pray and hope, that God helps you as well, through these hard, challenging times ahead:) May you have a blessed week ahead :) ]]]
Do you think that it is just possibly that you as a person could be misrepresenting your SELF and in turn giving credence to a non-existent entity that people call "god"?
Do you not have that faith in your SELF?
I agree what you say about the "crusades", people have been mislead since time began and still today it continues.
Tell me who in their right mind would blow themselves to pieces to appease religious leaders and a promise of eternal bliss whilst those very leaders of religion never do so?
Syrians, men, women and children cry "allah akbar" to their god as they too are blown to bits.
Where is that "saviour" that you speak of?
how to look if there is love or not? IF love is something beyond our knowledge and if it is a source that does not fail to take care of the body. how can one find it to want it from something private, personal , a thing desired to have just in an idea or command of someone else to be forced into an account as matter stinks. do one listens to that love as a source to live together? I see men possessed by demons since they use anger for hope to profit, that is using destruction in reality with deception as if I gain and now my return to love in nothing but evil energy in me that opposes creative one of reality, as if I fight or ignore you whenever i see you need me and thus I see the fruit of the evil since with out love in me I see infinite need in me and that is the destruction or hate or anger I harbor in me and indeed not to see you need to help or give or let the source of Life. He will defend me at the end when my stupid mind misleads me by the power of the hungry beast and restlessness. What is my mind, a beast, a government, a hero, - why they want us to know them? to control us by what they know and do they, let you to know for your self from a source truly yours; do I have that love which creates the living consciousness or just commands.
I know that those who hate God do not love God in the same time that is a secret of the devil that wants to hide under the skin. It is real terrible to see that men are so angry inside themselves that no sooner there is evil deed he will see a profit from in it. WHat a dream from those bu****ds who want to kill us at the end. I think we have to joint ourselves and make our selves rules that free us from stupid invention that just sickens. there is love that want life and from there one can see what is means oneness, morality, mutuality, no-duality, no conflicts, no contradiction, no fear, but only LOve. and we can Call that God.
the trouble is when on find his God the other do not find his so he has to adore the other and thus God becomes god or just knowledge to be forced on oneself and others again the true God. God is alive and so in all of us - so i ask is that holy spirit not that Love I am trying to think of?
It is the gods the stupid of control by rules, do they have power that move mountain with fire.
"you cannot solve problem with the same level of consciousness that created them" Einstein.
we need love that do not need to fight or run, or fly of handle or ignore, stone/drug oneself after illuminatus then we solve problem. too bad that Einstein lived in war times so that he did not invent something for live but a boom.
They want to divide us and kill us easily. The angry people in the self mind that allow no thoughts of your own to real life. very limited and sick indeed -where is God. Did our parent send us gods for praying to earn you living well listen to them inherit them and your body rots. we are divided by the angry energy and one's mind is working not free on its own, it wants to cheat to live. Where is God? well, well they tell you there is no God and you believe them, gods, they are very evil angry ones who have no morality in them at all. we are fooled my fellow mankind!
some have said that scientist cannot find seeing nothing as the end of universe and so concludes that our mind creates that something out of nothing - what about if we create out of that beast in us rather then that Love or God if you will, we may end up of seeing something eating our flesh and think that is God and thus damn his power and have more of nice eating oh yes, pizza.....
When you were asking me these questions, about my salvation, it wasn't because I choose a relationship with God because i was scared, but more because I got to a point, in my life, where I realized what God wanted or valued from me, was a personal, intimate relationship with Him. See, God has put in all our hearts a wanting a desire for something more, because He knew ahead of time, that we at some point in our lives, would get to the point, where we feel so lost and full of dispair, that we would need to turn to someone, who we knew could help us, in all areas of life and more so, give us life in our lives, we didn't know we needed and that my friend, is a personal relationship with Jesus. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, has been the biggest and most important decision, I have ever had to make and, when I made that decision, I finally realized, that that despair, feelings of confusion, your life feeling void, empty, meaningless, was then all complete, once I gave my heart and my life over to Christ. You see, that is what Christ meant, when He said to give us life and have it more abundantly:D Christ, wants us to know Him personally, but He is also patient and loving with us and gives us a choice, as He has put within us all, a personal free will, to choose, either rejecting Christ and going our own way, or choosing Christ, having life and having a faith that is strong to believe in God helping us, no matter how difficult the difficulty or circumstance, that we know, that our God will meet us where we are at:D That is why, I'm so thankful, that I know Jesus and have that personal relationship with Him, is because, without Christ in my life, my life would be a empty shell, meaningless. I can only speak this truth to you, because of what I have personally experienced in my life, as an individual and how, God has met me in every financial trouble, physical problem and painful challenges in life:) Okay, you take care of yourself Chavey. God bless you.
(it wasn't because I choose a relationship with God because i was scared)
you then say ....
( because He knew ahead of time, that we at some point in our lives, would get to the point, where we feel so lost and full of dispair, that we would need to turn to someone )
you then say ....
( God has met me in every financial trouble, physical problem and painful challenges in life:) )
Ryan, we all get scared at times in our life and I agree that we all look somewhere for help, you have chose "god".
As far as I'm concerned if that is your belief, so be it.
Ryan, do you believe everything that you have read in the bible?
If so, do you believe that a loving god would send people that did not abide his every word to hell for all eternity? In fact would you if you had the power?
Ryan Annunziello. Hi there, I don't know if are in a place, where you long for something more in life, or if you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but I wanted to send ya this song, because this described my needs, both before I didn't know Christ, but also describes my faith in God, even in the midst of trials, as I began my Christian journey with Christ. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sx2e58cL8r4
Either way, I hope someday, you realize how much God does love you as a person and how much you are treasured by Him :D
Ryan Annunziello here. No, I don't believe I'm misrepresenting myself at all, because I know fully well, from my own personal experience with my relationship with Jesus Christ, that He has helped me in so many ways with life, that no physcologist, or therapist could help me. You see, God gives me the strength, to keep going and to rely on Him, when others may fail, I have that 1 thing, that alot of people don't have, and that's faith. Faith is the evidence of things, not seen. It means believing and trusting in something and someone, even though you cannot see it, with your physical eyes. That is faith:D About you question, about the Syrians, crying out their chant, before blowing themselves up, I don't believe that, what they are doing is for God, they may think they are, but in God's word, the bible doesn't talk about blowing someone, or people up, so that you get entrance into Heaven. God is the one, who has created us in our mothers womb and God treasures life, so for this extremists, to kill someone in the name of God, I believe is not only wrong, but also, not relevant to the Word of God, as God treasures everyone and everyone's life, since He created us. That is my personal opinion on this matter. Okay take care Chavey and God bless.
this is interesting debate about the truth, long one but on the way.
at the end of the video, one fifth on right side he said: without Love/compassion, it is only intelligence, the truth cannot be. It is timeless. a flow that cannot be followed with thought, the subconscious is not stopped to wait for the mind while thinking. our mind stops and forces it to repeat the cause for the same effect. when greed or fear command things to happen it cannot come from love, from timeless to time and be true. So Love is free, a flow to the body that a mind cannot imprison in ideas to tap for power; in thoughts it ceases to be compassion as it hinders the awareness and sensitivities of its existance. One becomes brutal to force orders into man's realities. it is good to be loving and seeing and not hungry for misery of men's cruelty for cheat and have some money and pleasure, reward...http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=UlAUubewnTE
I know a lot of people that only wish to live in a negative world and it appears they do so to continue to sympathize with each other every time they meet.
If one comes along with a positive answer to their "problems" they are immediately frowned upon.
I see and hear this frequently and I don't wish to live my life this way.
Let me quote this :-
The basic nature of God's Justice:
GALATIANS 6: 7-9 (KJV)
7: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
It is so true.
This problem can be resolved by the seeds that we as individuals plant in our subconscious mind from the conscious mind.
If one wishes to use prayer I am aware that this works but the same result will come from ones "conscious" thoughts to ones "sub-conscious" mind.
Now how can one differentiate between the two?
Do I, as an individual have to abide religious dogma, the threat of everlasting turmoil because I fall occasionally to the requirements of a particular religion, when I can simply free my mind by tapping in to my sub-conscience?
