If you are part of the major religions of the world, then about 84% of you would believe in some sort of supreme force, be it God/Gods or Tao, any name given to this entity or force would have to be considered semantics of sorts since just about every religion with a belief in a supreme force that is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, could all agree that no single name for this type of force could possibly do it justice, and furthermore, such a force that has created "All that is" which is all powerful, knows everything and is present everywhere, couldn't possibly share this status with any other supreme force, yet humanity has deemed it necessary to break up the world's religions into about 4300 separate beliefs including Atheism, Agnosticism and secularism to make up the remaining 16%.
There is a logic to all of this seeming madness and it is so plain, and in your face that it is just a wonder that everyone hasn't seen it yet. There is only one all pervading force in the Universe and so far it has done a great job in marketing itself, in over 6500 languages, a hint of it's greatness is spread throughout the world, but better than that, this force has dispersed it's law and intentions where all that is required of us is to get together and compare notes to get the full story of Reality.
What about the 16% you ask, well the secularists practice free will and keep spiritual matters separate from a working society, the Agnostics have the spirit of skepticism driving them to seek better answers to those hard questions, and the Atheists are the control, the reality check of our planet, they are willing to live on their own terms and answer for their own misgivings, the organic version of mankind that believes that their good morals are their own responsibility, they may turn out be the most spiritual of us all by exhibiting some of the best of humanity by living by their instincts, though the Atheists have no belief in a God and the such, they also exercise their free will, free from religious guidance, their morality is their indicator of how their lives have progressed whether they believe in an all powerful force or not.
We are all born Atheists, our parents and relatives are our greatest influences on our beliefs, our friends, acquaintances, school chums and fellow workers would be the second greatest influences, then there is media and what we learn through life and the decisions we make for ourselves, which can be considered our free will.
How can that be?....How can't it be?....But my God makes no mistakes and told me so.
And so God has told all Religions that have a belief, God does not make mistakes, God makes Reality and gives all of us Free Will to mold this Reality to our beliefs.
It is just too bad that that has included so much hate and wars, and why is this so?
Because of our arrogance towards each of our religions we fail to see God's true greatness.
We fail to recognize God's plan to make it known to all of his children of it's existence, God is pleased that we recognize a greatness, even if it is through some of it's Demi Gods, but would be greatly pleased if we would all realize there is only One-God.
Now there are many people that have a problem with "God" or "Gods", even the Tao, being known as "The Way", some people have issues with, when in actuality, there is no description or definition that can do justice for the maker of all that is,
The hermeticists refer to it as "The All" and some channelers have mentioned "All that Is". I think the biggest rub in all of this is that "God" sounds so personal and accommodating, which attracts certain personalities, where as the Tao seems less personable and more encompassing,
"The All" or "All that Is" seems to cover all the angles and makes this power more mysterious. I guess it really doesn't matter what term is used for this, as it seems that this all pervading power has done a good job at letting itself be noticed by all of the religions and non religions on the planet,
where everyone has their own definition to what this Omnipotent energy with omniscient powers really is, what is of the most importance is that it has been noticed, and an existence of something is running this show.
As for the believers of different God, Demi-Gods and the male and Female aspects of God/Gods, they have been segregated for millennia, different aspects of every piece of life imaginable, I could give examples but there are so many as it would not be practical to even mention because they are all one in the same,
mother this, father that, good fortune, bad fortune etc. Are all aspects of the one god as it has been realized, according to the upset of cosmic balance when something bad happens a certain demon is to blame.
Cause and effect are the God given laws that bring these events about, God is not to blame, it is the poor uses of our Free Will that have brought despair to us and our world.
So you believe in God...your religion and spiritual practices have led you to believe that this God that you worship is the best, or so your religion says. Does your God love all of it's creation?
Has your God given the people that practice your religion exclusive rights, rights to be better than all of the other religions on the planet?
Your scriptures tell you that you must worship this God and no other, Do you think that these other Religions worship a different God?
What do you think that your God thinks of these other God's? I have not noticed any smiting of any particular religious faiths, I only notice PEOPLE taking the word of God into their own hands and dealing THEIR justice as they see fit,
we have all been given free will and do with it as we please, possibly we should take our free will and love one another to show God that we have learned something from his many religions and scriptures.
Please pardon the looks of this site as it is under construction, I thought that it was more important to get this info out first, than the looks, don't worry, it will improve.
