Creation of mankind

Welcome to my blog, Religious Reconciliation Doc
and my post, Creation of mankind

The Garden of Eden and Adam and Eva

Creation of mankind

Welcome to my post, Creation and creation of mankind. This is the first post that we talk about creation; this post will be followed by other post about creation, the reason for doing this it is because we are going to talk about many religions and perhaps myths of how the world started and how man came about, or created as this has to do with religious beliefs.
This is a study of religions and how they serve humanity; therefore in this article we are trying to compare at least the two largest religions of the world, how they begin and then how they explain creation and the creation of mankind.
So, let us see first of all how these main religions begin, and how they explain briefly the very beginning, the way it is written in their religious books and first of all let us talk about the Bible.
This is our personal view and we feel that the Bible starts in a very bold way and it does not explain how God came about, since God is there ready to create the world, as most of us know the Bible stars thus:

1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth.
2 Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, with a divine wind sweeping over the waters.
3 God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light.
4 God saw that light was good, and God divided light from darkness.
5 God called light 'day', and darkness he called 'night'. Evening came and morning came: the first day.
6 God said, 'Let there be a vault through the middle of the waters to divide the waters in two.' And so it was.
7 God made the vault, and it divided the waters under the vault from the waters above the vault.
8 God called the vault 'heaven'. Evening came and morning came: the second day.
This was the first day of God’s creation in the Bible, God continues to create the rest, and then God created man.
26 God said, 'Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'
27 God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them, saying to them, 'Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.'
29 God also said, 'Look, to you I give all the seed-bearing plants everywhere on the surface of the earth, and all the trees with seed-bearing fruit; this will be your food.
30 And to all the wild animals, all the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that creep along the ground, I give all the foliage of the plants as their food.' And so it was.
31 God saw all he had made, and indeed it was very good. Evening came and morning came: the sixth day.
 Here-under there is a second description of how God created man:
5 there was as yet no wild bush on the earth nor had any wild plant yet sprung up, for Yahweh God had not sent rain on the earth, nor was there any man to till the soil.
6 Instead, water flowed out of the ground and watered all the surface of the soil.
7 Yahweh God shaped man from the soil of the ground and blew the breath of life into his nostrils, and man became a living being.
8 Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden, which is in the east, and there he put the man he had fashioned.
9 From the soil, Yahweh God caused to grow every kind of tree, enticing to look at and good to eat, with the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
And still there is another creation going:

20 The man gave names to all the cattle, all the birds of heaven and all the wild animals. But no helper suitable for the man was found for him.
21 Then, Yahweh God made the man fall into a deep sleep. And, while he was asleep, he took one of his ribs and closed the flesh up again forthwith.
22 Yahweh God fashioned the rib he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man.
23 And the man said: This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh! She is to be called Woman, because she was taken from Man.
24 This is why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes attached to his wife, and they become one flesh.
This is how the Bible explains creation and the creation of mankind.

Spiritual circumstances



Spiritual circumstances

Welcome to my post, Spiritual circumstances do exist;

May God help and guide me to write the right religious things in this chapter called, Spiritual circumstances do exist, being part also of Prayers for Reconciliation religious writings.
When or if we look back at our own religious life observations that we have already written and many other religious things that the people believe, we might have to agree that some sorts of spiritual circumstances do exist, since these are the circumstances that we happen to live during our own lives and they should all be viewed together with our other life observations.
Now this article is being written to explain some of these spiritual circumstances; but it is also being written for other articles. As I have already said in my other posts, these religious writings are being written in good faith for the benefit of mankind. In these writings we are in search of ourselves religiously so to speak, so, while we are writing and discussing what our main theme of spiritual circumstance is, we will also be looking for religious options that could improve links between religions. In one of our last posts we have talked about, the existence of God. In this post we will be writing about: Those spiritual circumstances that sometimes happen in our lives, and why I made the decision to tell my friends about them?
But first of all let me say something about these religious writing, where I would like to assure my readers that my intention is to try to modify religions wherever possible without upsetting anybody, So please read the following:
For my readers’ peace of mind
Now, for my readers’ peace of mind I am repeating this explanation again, because some of you may find these religious writings controversial, so, again let me explain to our readers about these religious writings while writing my introduction for this article:
To anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs, please read my 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; therefore your religious beliefs and the existing religions will remain just the way they are today. So, don’t you worry if my religious writings could sound different from the ways that we usually hear religions being preached, as it will all be explained as you read them, and then, you can judge for yourself at the end of our religious writings of Prayers for reconciliation and Reconciliation of the Universe?

Our spiritual circumstances

Let me welcome you again to my post called, Spiritual circumstances exist
Dear readers I would like to bring to your attention that spiritual circumstances exist, because everything that is religious, by default is also spiritual; this also applies to what we have already said before, where we have somehow come to the conclusion in the hub called ‘God exists,8’ first that God exists at least by definition, and then we have also assumed that God exists even if God is different from the God in the Bible; this here is the link to check it out; God exists, 8 , we have also talked about spiritual dreams; this is the link to check it out; Cosmic Spiritual Dreams, 7 , and we also have published Prayers for reconciliation, 5; this is the link to check it out Prayers for Reconciliation, 5,
Now, what follows here-under has been born from the need of circumstances, because spiritual circumstances exist as we have explained above, and also as you can see for yourself. You see, here I am talking about everything put together; but then I have also to say that what we have written in Prayers for Reconciliation and my spiritual dreams and other things, they are all driving me to write these religious writings that I am writing here, I hope that you can see the link that spiritual circumstances exist. You see after that supernatural experience that I had then, and I need to say also that for a long time I kept that supernatural happening to myself, as I felt that I had to keep it to myself somehow, because when these unusual things happen and you tell someone they think you are going crazy.
Therefore before I told anyone, I had to think it over many times whether I should tell at least my most trusted friends about this supernatural and unbelievable happening, because what I saw and heard at that time could only make sense to myself and nobody else. Anyhow, in the end I came to the conclusion that I had to tell at least my most trusted friends, even if they might think that I was crazy, after all they were my friends.

Telling my friends
And just as I thought, the very first time that I told my friends about the supernatural event they seemed worried about what I had just told them, and after consulting among themselves for a while they came back to me and said;
If you really believe in what you have seen and heard to be true, and you have not dreamed it or invented it, but really it has happened to you, then, we have to believe you no more questions about that. And then later on they went on saying, if what you are saying is true, then the question arises what can one do about it? And also what are you going to do about it?
So I replied to them, that although I felt within myself that I wanted to do something about it, for me it would not be easy to tell the world of this supernatural happening, because very likely they would think that I was crazy, and then, how could I make the world believe that it had really happened to me? So I said that I had to think it over.
Now, I do not know why my friends came to my rescue, whether they wanted to know more about my mental state, or just for friendship sake, my fried Mark said: because you don’t seem to feel sure about yourself, we, (that is me and Gino here) are ready to help you in any way possible, as we feel within our hearts that you need some help to encourage you to do something about it, or at least talk about it, if you so wish.
Then my lifelong friend Mark said to Gino: Would you be ready to help Frank, Gino with this somehow religious matter that is on his mind?
And Gino said yes.
This is how I accepted to write these religious writings with the help of my friends Mark and Gino.
So now, I am going to call on my friends to have a good talk about these religious writings, since they believe me about my spiritual circumstances.
Before I call this meeting with Mark and Gino, let me say a prayer of reconciliation to Our Heavenly Father, so that I would become inspired and worthy to write these religious writings, that I am hoping to write with the help of my friends of course.
Almighty and merciful Father, to you I turn Father-Most-High praying with all my heart, my soul and my mind earnestly; I am praying and hoping that in your mercy you would forgive me all my life sins, and that you would make me spiritually clean of any impurities that may affect my soul; so that, I would become worthy to pray to you and be heard and worthy in your eyes to be your humble servant and write these religious writings as humanly as possible according to your will. Father, hear my prayer and help me! Amen.
I believe that I have said enough in this post, but I am going to write another religious post soon; see you then.
