Re: The Age of "Doubters" and Believers"
honest reply in a minute
With that said, here are my questions.
First Series of Questions.
1) Does God exist? Why or Why not? - Offcourse, but the concept of God is to vast especially for religious people.
2) Are you religious? Why or why not? - no, because I think and not blindly follow.
3) What is your view of God? How did you arrive at it? I think God in general is a endless field of consciousness in comparison with Phi which all of us are part of. Years of research, questioning everything
Second Series of Questions.
4) Is it possible for our main sacred texts to have utter different meanings than what's taught by the Priest-class to the masses? Why or Why not? Priests want to dumb us down in order to control us. The prophets of each religion thought us to search for god from the inside (ourselves) not external search like going to church or w/e.
5) We have many religions in our world which postulate their God(s) as the only God. Why is the God of your religion the one true God? Are the others wrong for worshiping someone else? Do you have proof? Each religion has the same principle. In the end, its all the same and meant to bring us all to spiritual enlightenment. Too bad, out of all that knowledge, we created a dumbing down tool called religion which rooted itself down in our culture. Though I might sound offensive, I respect every religion because of the hidden messages in it. I just don't devote my life to praying and abiding by church rules and such.
6) According to the Christian teachings, those who are non-believers will perish in hell, why? What is the difference between a non-believe and a believer? I think the term believer is created by the curch. I don't think that the real Christian teachings tell us to abide or we will go to hell..no, I honestly think those texts are either misinterpreted or purposely translated into coded text to only reach the enlightened ones. Like, maybe 'believer' was meant to be interpreted as someone that's aware of his/her connection to the earth, people, universe blabla.
Sorry, too many questions -__-' hope that'll be enough
