Welcome to my blog, Religious Reconciliation Doc
and this post; The existing religions
About the existing religions
In our last post we were saying that God exists because life exists and that God exists at least by definition. Now let us accept that God exists at least by definition and that God is life itself and it cannot be any other way. If we accept that then one may start thinking and ask these questions; what about the existing gods and religions? Are all these existing religions that we have today all lies you would like to ask? The answer to that is; No they are not completely lies there is a fair amount of truth about them. The truth may well be that in the past whenever some unexplained event took place that could prove that it was a god sent event, people took notice of that event, and ether they wrote it down or was passed by word of mouth from generation to generation, but then with the passing of time it became slowly distorted and exaggerated.
For instance; Yahweh God of the Israelite appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai as a burning shrub and said to Moses that He was God. We have to believe that this is all true and perhaps some of the other events after that were also true; but then a lot of things became exaggerated as the time went by and every writer that wrote or re-wrote this event said what he thought was right; you see those writers that wrote those events could only express those events, as good as their knowledge was, and perhaps they had to make it as simple as they could, so that the people of those times would understand what they were talking about.
Of course we have also to admit that the leaders of those time used any means available to them to control their people, therefore they saw that religions could be used to control their people and so they did. So the writers of those times had to design their religious writings in such a way that the people could be controlled, they had to do that because that was the easiest way to control the people then, you see people then were more violet then today, they had to be strong and aggressive because that was the only way to survive, what else could they do? So religions were helpful and were the best non violent means to control people. Therefore we may conclude that any religious event slowly became distorted with the passing of time, because of the need to control the public. I hope you all see what I mean one way or another.
So, what can we do today to set the record straight you may ask? But there is no much we can do; perhaps we can modify our existing religious beliefs in such a way that we can still use them without upsetting anybody.
I believe that today we have reached the age of reason; here I want to say that we have evolved to a high level of consciousness and therefore we are ready to use our logic reasoning and everything that does not stand to our logic reasoning will be rejected, therefore there are some existing religions that need to be modified and be more in line with today way of living, this is according to what I have already said in my hub, Religious Reconciliation Forum, here is the link to check it out; Religious reconciliation forum, 2
Here I could add that there are also other people that would like to prove the existence of God, so I am going to post another post about what this bloke would like to say. See you soon.
