Religious change ahead

Welcome to our blog, Religious Reconciliation Doc
and this post,  Religious changes ahead

Religious changes ahead

When we talk about religions we always end up talking about the Bible, this is only normal, because the Bible is the most religious book read in the world. As we have already said many times before, many religions derive from the Bible; but our friend Mark here believes that there are changes coming up in the future. Therefore let us see what he has to say.

Religious changes ahead
Mark sees changes ahead.
Dear readers, in our previous post we said that we were going to hear what Mark was going to say, and this is what he said:
Let us stop just for a moment to think about nowadays religious matters, as this is very important to know, as it affects a large part of our life religious and otherwise, so, it would be great if we could find some answers to the questions raised from our fried Frank.

My own personal experience nowadays leads me to think that most things are changing including religious beliefs and things, perhaps slowly but they are changing, it has got to be that way, since a lot of things have changed especially the last 50 years.
When I was a teenager I remember that the Bible was called the Sacred Scripture, and it would be a sin for anyone other than the priest to handle it or read from it. Today the Bible is available to the public and also some other religious books. So, today it is only a matter of time before the public at large learns what is written in the whole Bible and what could be true and good to believe; and what doesn’t make sense and therefore one should not bother about it.

Now let us talk about our present times; as you know, today most household have a computer, which helps in many ways to learn new things at a very fast pace indeed; so, the computer is going to accelerate the changes it is obvious, it is going to be just like other great events that have happened in the past, whenever there is something that radically changes the way of thinking or doing things, great changes follow it is inevitable.

Now, let us take a look at discussion groups on the Internet:
There are perhaps hundreds if not thousands of groups; they are all discussing their own agenda, I don’t want to talk about all those groups, as here we want to talk about religious groups or religious things mostly. As you all know there are some groups which talk only about religion and their own beliefs; there are groups discussing philosophy, which in a way could and would include religion because religion is part of life; there are groups discussing evolution including creation versus evolution; and at the present time there is also a large group called, Atheism versus Christianity.
Of all these groups, Atheism versus Christianity is one of the largest groups if not the largest, the atheists don’t believe about God, so they do not believe in any religions and would like to see religions disappear.

The Atheists group is formed largely from well educated people, and therefore, when a discussion arises they are able to put a strong case about their non-beliefs, so the followers of religious groups, which are usually a large part uneducated, so they feel and are disadvantaged when they talk, it happens like that because of this difference in education they have received, so they are left in a disadvantaged position. This may give rise to the believers losing faith and moving away from their own original religions.
My views are these: As the Atheists as a whole does not see that if they destroy people beliefs and religions, they are very likely going to create many big problems in the whole world.

This makes me think about those differences of opinion, so I believe that atheist are making a mistake in believing that the world may be better off without religions, because looking at the whole situation, I have to say that God and man need each other, and that is the reason why religions need to exist. What do you say, do you agree with me? Mark asked.

We all said in a way or another, of course we agree with you, your reasoning makes things very clear. Then, I said; I will take note of your speech and if you don’t mind I will write it down in my religious writings. Now, if I remember right you have said before, that man needs God, and also that God is hope for those that need hope most, so, I believe in what you have said.

Gino was also impressed and wanted to say something himself:

And this is what Gino said.

Religious problems ahead

I should say that I have been thinking about what we said about the end of the Bible, in one of our meetings; but I have not done anything at all, although every now and then with my friends here Don, Bill and Peter we have mentioned it, without having any real deep conversation about the subject.

Look Frank, I really thought that you would give up about writing this idealistic religious theory of yours; you see it is very hard to do something that other people have tried to ignore for thousands of years, whether it was through fear or lack of knowledge. Beside that you and I, including our friends here today, we are not what you would call highly educated people. I know that we know how to understand just about anything written, and understand perhaps better than somebody else, because we apply our own reasoning mind properly when we have to, we are also able to write something well enough and be understood, but that may not be good enough to write what you want to try to write, you see, even the religious writer try hard to avoid any religious changes for fear of being ridiculed, I hope you see what I mean.

Now, I see that you look disappointed, Frank!? Since you are keen to write your religious theory, no matter how much troubles you may be getting yourself into, so, I will try to learn a bit more about religious things and next time we meet I may be able to say something more positive.

For the time being I would suggest that perhaps we may have to start reading the Bible again and again from the very beginning; and while we read and study the Bible we should ask ourselves whether the meanings are clear enough and are they in line with what we have been told they are supposed to mean? Or if there is another meaning to what we have been told and what we see at first glance. I think that this is worth to try; that is all I want to say for now about religions.

This is how this religious meeting ended, because after Gino speech we just chatted about other matters that would not and could not interest our religious readers here.

After we enjoyed ourselves chatting and having a few drinks my friends departed, so I was left all by myself to decide what I had to do next, so, I thought I better do what I was doing before the meeting.

And again I thought that perhaps a prayer to God could help, and again I prayed God for guidance in many ways.

So here I prayed one of our, people prayers to God;

 People prayer to God

We come to you praying God-Most-High master and eternal life giver of the universe, we are praying thee for forgiveness, reconciliation, cleansing, guidance and blessing.

Father, we are praying and hoping that in your mercy you would forgive us all our life sins, and that you would make us spiritually clean of any impurities that may affect our souls; and thus, we would become worthy to pray to you and our prayers of forgiveness and reconciliation would be heard and accepted.

We are praying in the hope that we would receive your forgiveness, reconciliation cleansing, guidance and blessing, and after receiving them, let us be your humble servants.

Father, hear my prayer forgive me my sins and bless me; so that I can live in harmony with thy eternal benevolent life-force; Amen.


This is all for this post folks, may God bless us all?

See you later; may God bless us all?

We need to pray

Welcome to our blog, Religious reconciliation doc
and this post, We need to pray God
We need to pray God

Dear readers, wherever we are and whatever we do, if we believe in God and that God could help us, then we need to pay God to help us, even if this help might never happen, by praying God we feel better, as it gives us that feeling that we have done the right thing, so whenever we have doubts on our mind let us pray God to help us.

We need to pray God

Dear readers, we are writing this post to express our point of view about religious issues; we believe that in order to find the right religious way in these religious issues that we are writing here, we need to pray God to help us; you see these writings form part of Prayers for reconciliation, this could be said that it is a study of religions, so, we who believe in God and are glad to say so, it still might happen that sometimes we don’t know if we are doing the right religious things, so, whenever there are doubts in our minds and we happen to ask ourselves whether we are doing the right thing, whenever this happens the best thing to do is to pray God to help us overcome our doubts, so, I am praying God for guidance here and now.

Our Father in heaven, to you I turn God Most High, and I start to pray with all my heart, my soul and my mind. In the name of The-Father The-Son and The-Holy Spirit I am praying, hoping that the ever present guiding force of the Holy Spirit on earth (God) would guide me; So that, I would be able to write these religious writing as humanly as possible according to Your will. Father, hear my prayer and guide me! Amen.

Now because what we are writing here may seem somehow different from the normal religious ways, let us say something for our readers’ peace of mind, because they might become alarmed.

We would like to say, to anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs, please read our Prayers for Reconciliation writings fully before you pass judgment and quit reading; you see Prayers for Reconciliation is only an idealistic theory, which through discussions with other fellow believer (and perhaps non-believers) is trying to find a way on how to link all existing religions together, in the hope that they would be able to live in harmony and not to fight each other in the future.

So, I am going to say here that we with prayers in our heart and beliefs in our minds we (I and my friends) are going to try to find a way how to achieve what seems impossible to achieve today, so we are going to discuss many religious issues, in the hope of finding a way to achieve that; may God hear our prayer and help us, amen.


Religious discussions

As you may already know, we have some religious meetings to discuss our religious views; anyhow I have not seen my religious friends for a while, so, I have written a religious chapter all by myself, and it is so boring, I hope my readers will not be bored also when they read it, it is too hard to talk forever all by oneself, you know; even if you have millions of things to say, so I have asked my friends Mark, Gino and others to come to a new friendly religious meeting, in the hope that we may come up with a new strategy, and also find a way how to write religious issues that do not sound so boring.

Now I am waiting for my friends to come, while I am getting a few things together, so that we may have a few nibbles and a drink during or after the meeting; you see I do not want them to feel pushed too much about these religious matters, as they don’t seem to volunteer easily to talk seriously about religion, so I want them to feel that we are here to enjoy ourselves first of all.

At last my friends have arrived, so I better meet them at the front door, so that they may feel welcome. I can see five of them, there is Mark, Gino, Don, Bill and another bloke that I have only seen around sometimes with Gino, so I wonder what type of person he may be. Anyhow we greeted each other as often friends do and Gino introduces his friend Peter to me, he seems a decent sort of bloke to me, so I hope he is also interested in religious talks.

So, we go inside while chatting about many unimportant things, asking how we feel about this and that, and what we have been doing lately. We sit down around this table that I have made ready, and while I offer them a drink they all start nibbling from whatever was on the table, we were all relaxed and enjoying each other company for a while. But then Gino seemed to remember the reason why we were there and asked; Frank, have you written or done anything about those religious beliefs or feelings that you have towards religion?

Of course I have! I said. And then I said;

To tell you the truth I have written a whole chapter all by myself, which I am going to let you read it, if you want to read it later on. Now I want you to know that for me it has been very hard to write that religious stuff, just because I would have felt better if we had had some discussions on those religious subjects I have written, and then it becomes too monotonous and boring, so I really wish that we had discussed a few things before I wrote them down, as that would have made me feel better. Anyhow, now you are here and we may discuss a few religious things together.

If I remember right a while ago we were discussing the very end of the Bible, which seems to forbid any change of what the Bible says, and therefore any change in religious beliefs; if one believes that not only the end of the Bible cannot be changed, but also anything in the Bible cannot be changed. Here I would like to ask, have you formed any opinion on that subject since then? Or what have you found out since last time we talked about this that might be able to help me write my religious theory?

Well; no I haven’t thought much about that; Gino said.

The same here; Mark said, however I have been thinking about the religious situation of today, so, I would like to say what I think.

We all agreed to hear him; anyhow because this post might become too long, we are going to post it in our next post, religious changes ahead, so let us hear then what Mark said.

See you soon.
