47. DO THE DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS APPROACHES CONTRADICT “A GOD”?

Do the different religious approaches contradict a GOD

I say they are similar in the experience but different in the interpretation and the methods of what pleases their GOD. I also believe that most religions manipulate “GOD’s will” to fit their political agenda “in the name of GOD.” For me, only the source matters, the original Word of GOD in the original language of the Bible, Hebrew. Everything else is only human interpretations and self-interest manipulations. 

Some argue that religious experiences cannot be trusted because they contradict each other: some describe a revelation or encounter with the Jewish GOD, others with the Christian, Muslim, or Hindu GOD. It is not possible for all of them to be real; at least some of them are hallucinations. And since some of those experiences are hallucinations, it is quite possible that they are all hallucinations and none of them are real.

I will answer this critique: First, there are not only differences but also many common similarities between religious experiences, and if the differences are a reason to reject them, then the similarity is a

reason to accept them.

Secondly, the critique assumes that not all of those experiences are real. But the difficulty in accepting them all as true is that such an understanding raises theological difficulties. But theological difficulties can be discussed in the theological field, and the present discussion concerns the epistemological (cognitive) plane, which should be approached with as few prejudices as possible.

If there is much evidence of religious experiences that seem credible and there is no particular reason to doubt them, it makes sense to conclude that they do express an actual reality, which can be discussed, and the difficulties it raises, later on the theological level.

On this level, one can say for example that revelation itself is real but man interprets it according to his religious concepts, or that the transcendent deity “dresses” in tangible images appropriate to the person receiving it, or perhaps that deity itself has different aspects and each religion has a core of truth directed to one.

YOUR SOUL NEEDS SPIRITUALITY BUT YOU ONLY TRUST REALITY & FACTS

In the spiritual world reside the forces that operate our lives in daily reality. Get to know them, because your happiness depends on them.

While we are selfish creatures with survival mechanisms and animal instincts to achieve more than we need, we’re also wired (DNA & neurotheology) for spirituality and to live for the greater good, for the higher self. For that reason, we are wired to protect our spouse, our family, our country, and be connected to a higher spirituality we call GOD (whatever it is).

We seek to connect to the highest authority which is above human sensual perception. We seek a GOD to be our ultimate guide. Not the GOD that the religions created for us with endless restrictions and imaginary hell and heaven, but the true real GOD.

This book sums up thousands of years and debates to one practical conclusion: is it good for humans to have and believe in (a) GOD or not.

While emerging in the debate, keep an open mind and ignore any religious misconception of who GOD really is. You are here because you care to know if there is a higher authority and if your life will be more fulfilled with GOD in it. You want to know if spirituality is good for you.

WHEN DO YOU FEEL SPIRITUALITY?

The spirit is invisible, but it is revealed in every phenomenon in life that means oneness. It is revealed the moment you look into a person’s eyes and discover that you both feel the same. Spirituality is revealed as soon as you do something that makes others a caravan of joy. It is revealed the moment someone refers to you and you refer to him, and you are both aware of each other’s existence. As a Roman poet so beautifully put it: “Outside all the notions of good and evil there is a field. Will you meet me there?”

Socrates was said to have not come from Athens, but from the world. You and I are two aspects of one reality, united and all-embracing. In unity no differences are eliminated. For things to unite, they do not have to lose their individual identities.  In unity only the separation between them is abolished, which is the difference in value and importance. Then it turns out that everything is one thing.
