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?
