Religion

religion-1

 

 What is religion? Where did if first come from? Did you ever wonder why are there so Religions? Or why there are so many Gods? There is a Christian, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon, Buddha, Muslim, even a New Age God,  just to name a few. So with so many religious concepts of God, how are we to know which is the real one?

Are you sure the Religion and God you have chosen to worship, is the real provable one, because if you cannot prove there is a God, what do you really have? Just a belief and  what good is a belief in time of need? That’s right, no good at all.

Besides your Religion telling you there is a God just what proof do you have that there is  a God?  If God were something real, wouldn’t It let you know first hand?  Wouldn’t God want you to know him? Personally?

Doesn’t the fact that there are so many conflicting religious beliefs of, on or about God, tell you that God is a complete mystery to the world?

WHY?

All Religions Are Based On Beliefs.

NOT FACTS.

Beliefs are, ‘opinions.’ And ‘opinions’ are ‘beliefs without proof.’ And  beliefs can change. Religion started out with the Sun, then followed with  mythology.Mythology  is, ‘an imaginary or fictitious thing  person’. ‘Not fact or logic.’ There just is no proof as to whether a God or Gods existed then or now. None.

Religions are based on faith and faith is only a, belief’. People need to believe that there is ‘something’ more, so they invented-

God, Gods, Goddess, Deities and Religions. 

According to Webster’s, religion means a,  ‘set of beliefs concerning the cause of all things.’ So, Religion is a, set of beliefs.  And just because a belief is agreed and accepted as factual, does not make it so. And just what is the belief of a God based on?  What ‘facts’?

In the case of Religion, the only facts they have, are passed down beliefs. So, your religion is you agreeing and accepting the beliefs of others. Your Religion is you agreeing with someone else’s opinion of the reality of a God based on THEIR understanding. Not yours. Theirs.

Religion is a ‘belief in, worship of, or obedience to a supernatural power or powers considered to be divine or to have control of human destiny.’

Again, a  belief. Not a fact.

From the beginning of Religion, each of these religious groups choose the God they believe is the real God,  then do their best to convince all others that their God is the real and only God. For some reason most of these religious groups think it’s their duty to force the world into their beliefs.  Odd that any God of any religion would want His followers to be so hateful of others.

Religion started with terrible conflict and all these thousands of year later, NOTHING HAS CHANGED. The fact is no Religion knows GOD. They know what they think they know, but all they know is what they have been taught to know of God. By other men.Not by a God.

Unless God is personal, to you, You do not have  any God and unless God speaks directly to YOU, you have no God. You have a belief. A  belief you call God.All based on what man has told you even though we have been told we should not listen to man.

Think of this, religion  means, ‘conscientiousness,’  which means,’ just, upright,honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated.’

Religion then is not something that needs to be organized or has anything to do with groups or  with anyone or anything other than YOU.

Religion is, YOU being, just, upright, honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated. Religion is a personal thing and does not need to be organized.

Sin_Main

  bGDDOT1464643144

Do I say I have no sin? Yes I do, at least I think I don’t , but according to John… I do and I am deceiving myself by saying,  I do not.

th

Maybe I do not understand what sin really is. Guess I should get my dictionary and find out, because I do not want to suffer.

Sin_Main

 Means to

‘offend’

Do I ever ‘offend? I’m sure I do.

So then when I offend someone, it will be me who suffers.

Do I ever get ‘offended? I do.

Then I am sinning and I will suffer for being offended.

Sin_Main - Copy

Means

‘anger’

Do I ever get ‘angry’? Yes, yes I do.

So each time I get ‘angry,’ I sin and I will suffer.

Guess I need to be AWARE of getting angry so I stop it before it starts, because I do not want to suffer.

Sin_Main

Means

‘displeasure’

Am I ever ‘displeased’ by ‘someone ‘or by ‘something’?

Yep, I do get ‘displeased.’

Then each time I am ‘displeased,’ I sin and I will suffer.

The Void

 Do Not Freak Out About This Post.

KweisC1445613543

Just what is the ‘truth’ we are to know? And if it is ‘truth’ that sets us ‘free’, what are we set free from?

Guess we should know a meaning for the word.

Truth, ‘what actually occurred.’

Okay, so what ‘actually did occur…in the beginning?

9uGgpr1445619196

And where might this ‘void’ exist, that ‘brings forth all things?

1= Consciousness  does not contain ‘forms’

And Consciousness IS -Where ALL things come from.

Then we are told

3

It clearly states that we, man  were created in  Gods

IMAGE AND LIKENESS

Why are we told God looked like man?

Or that we look like God?

If we do not?

Wouldn’t that mean, God, the Creator looks like us?

What else could it mean?

So

1==

Think about that one because, without God, without Consciousness, there wouldn’t be nothing.

 At least think about it because we are told that we are one with our God.  One with Consciousness.

And how about what man is today learning?

8

Yes, man  creates his world out of the VOID of his

Consciousness.

Just like the Creator from the Bible.

Mans Thoughts, Ideas and Images

  Project  out as   ‘forms.’

As US. As our REALITY.

And now seriously think about this one.

truth

Is the ‘truth’ we are to know, it is our self’s who are the creators?

egSaNe1445622503

If man is one with his God, Consciousness

Then God, Consciousness, is man and man is God, Consciousness

Is it not true…

Without God there is nothing.

Without Consciousness, there is nothing.

Without your Consciousness…There is nothing?

Will understanding this…set us free?

Double Minded

 jnngVa1443286221

Double means, ‘composed of two unlike parts’

2xu9mf1444746575

‘A double minded man’ is a man or women who  ‘combines’  GOOD  and BAD thoughts in his thinking.

hkAUm81443286660

Sometimes our GOOD thoughts weigh more than the BAD ones and all is GOOD.

PNJwf41443286797

But then we allow the BAD thoughts to out weigh the GOOD ones, and we encounter BAD things.

Yes, a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Family. Home. Work. Play. Love. Health.

 

aYMZw51443286564The only way not to be a double minded person is to STOP combining good and bad thoughts.

 

h718JY1444748985

Purify your THOUGHTS ‘double minded man.

Pure means, ‘not mixed.’

Buddhism

OCvJ691444070756

It seems like, YES.

YES, because Jesus did preach many of the beliefs of Buddha.

The Buddha like sayings by Jesus, were said by Buddha  500 or so years before Jesus. Jesus and his ways were much like those of Buddha.

OCvJ691444070756

Buddha: “Consider others as yourself.” Dhammapada 10:1

Jesus: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

OCvJ691444070756

Buddha: “Abandoning the taking of life, the ascetic Gautama dwells refraining from taking life, without stick or sword.” Digha Nikaya 1:1.8

Jesus: “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Perishable is a city built on sand.”

JESUS: “A foolish man, which built his house on sand.” Matthew 7:26

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Confess before the world the sins you have committed.” (31)

JESUS: “Therefore confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed.” James-5-16

OCvJ691444070756

BUDDHA: “Consider others as yourself.” (33)

JESUS: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

OCvJ691444070756

These are only a few.

Could Jesus have studied Buddhism during his missing 3 years?

 

The above is all new to me, so I decided to take a COURSE in Buddhism to see what all I can find that would lead me to believe if Jesus followed Buddhism…since I always have to find my own facts and DO NOT FOLLOW HANDED DOWN OPINIONS AND BELIEFS.

Like so many other sayings, could this one have a hidden meaning? Lets see.

    First, why would Jesus want them to ‘leave their nets.’

‘Leave’ comes from the word, ’believe’ and ’believe is, ’to accept something as true without absolute proof that it is true.’

Could Jesus have been trying to tell the fishermen that it was time to ‘leave,’ to leave what they had always ‘believed and accepted’ about what they had been taught about God?  Did Jesus want to teach them about his God, a God that they could ‘prove’?

 Maybe another reason was because Jesus understand the word ’net’ can mean, ’conditions and circumstances.’

Was Jesus trying to get the men to understand that their present ‘conditions ’ were only ‘agreements?’ Agreements, because that is what the meaning for ‘conditions’ is, ‘agreements.’

If so, an ‘agreement with what? Agreements with the handed down beliefs and opinions from the ancient fathers? Ancient fathers who believed in a god of war and destruction?

 Did Jesus also understand the word ’net’ can mean,  ‘circumstances?

Interesting to know that the word ‘circumstance’ has a meaning of, ‘to stand around.’ And isn’t that what you do when you fish the way you have been taught to fish? You ‘stand around, waiting’? Also interesting is that ‘stand’ can mean, an ‘opportunity.’

Was Jesus giving them an ‘opportunity’ to change their ‘conditions and circumstances’? An ‘opportunity’ to understand they did not   have to ‘agree’ with what they had been taught about God and man.

A God they had been taught was the real God, with  no proof that He was real? And that man is made of the flesh, when he is not.

zlxflq1436644327

Isn’t it most interesting to know different meanings for words? So think about this…Jesus wanted the fishermen to ‘follow’ him…not follow him around the countryside…but to ‘follow’…to listen to him and to accept him as their guide.

Did Jesus want the fishermen to stop agreeing with worldly conditions and worldly circumstances and worldly beliefs and handed down opinions of God and his Creation and to ‘follow’ which in this case means to ‘listen to him and he would guide and teach them truths of a real God. And by understanding the real God, it would change their human conditions and circumstances.

Another meaning for the word ‘net’ is ‘anything that serves to ensnare.’ Ensnare is to, ‘trap and take power over someone.’

Was Jesus telling them that if they left their old ways and old beliefs and followed him, he would show them  the truth of things and they could regain their power and be set free from their human conditions and circumstances.

Maybe, because

l8oMun1440349127

Could that be what Jesus was really saying to them? That they could take back their God given power of freedom?

And maybe Jesus wanted them to understand that there were different ways to fish.

Since a meaning for the word ‘fish’ is  ‘to search, to seek,’ did Jesus want to show them how, if they would leave their nets he would show them how to ‘search and seek’ and then to become fishermen of men?

 They must have believed in Jesus
