well, then, do any of you or can any of you consider that there is more then one God?
Meaning, the ancients believed so...where did the Romans conjur up that concept...do you believe there was a factual city called Atlantis?
Ron, your explaination of time and dimension helps...it is what I to believe...but I believe God goes much deeper then many Christains believe.
So so many Christians pray for things to happen and that's a good thing, but so many of them believe that God will intervein and wave a magic wand, to make things better.
I don't believe he does that..and then sometimes I do? Meaning, theoretically I believe that God created life, we're born, but with that life, he grants us choice...so many people blame so much on others, that they forget where the original decission came from....which is self. Any idea or bad behavior, bad choice comes from within. We choose, not God...and we can make it better.
I don't know if I've clearly explained what I'm trying to project here, but I'll do my best.
I believe God leaves us on our own, so to speak, once he grants us life...it's all up to us, to project our souls, awareness into a much deeper moral stability which best attributes our individual journey...I suppose what I'm trying to say, and if any of you can help me out, I'd surely appreciate. What I mean to say, is God, is much bigger then Christains believe Him to be...and their religion is not that simple as they perceive it...like dieing for instance...I believe in those plains, dimensions...and dieing to me, would be like walking through a door, into and onto another plain/dimension...I believe there's more to outer space then most people think it to be...but its greater and deeper with so so much knowledge and other beings...and I don't believe it's about space travel, but traveling back and forth thru the dimensions...yanno?
It amazes me, how so much more capable we are to conceive this, and yet, our country, our world is so still uneducated...we should be much further along, I think? But fear within the Christain Communities stagnates this growth...and I say again...I believe the Bible is a good book to live life by, but I don't believe it is accurate, due to man's greed and desire for material wealth, power, postion.
A clear example of that would be...and gosh, I wish I could remember the exact words and text to direct you to, but I read in the Bible, where someone is in Hell, and the son/or relative of that person asks if he can give water to that person...and either God or Jesus says, No, neither can he cross over into this world, nor can you cross over there...Now this passage was pointed out to me in Bible Stude when I inquired about ghosts. And yet, so so many people have seen ghosts, talked to them, been scared by them...spirits lingering...and how bout the mothman proficies...? The warnings before the Chernoble accident...and the collapse of that bridge in Point Plesant, Virginia?
What I'm saying is this, do I believe in Jesus, Yes...but stories can surely get blown out of porportion...why are so so many Christians afraid to ask questions...and so adament that every single word in the Bible is authentically expressed? Not to mention, it is so metaphorically written, whose to say that interpritations are correct.
I still would very much like to believe that Jesus, being 1/2 man would have been given the great gift of knowing and experiencing love and intimacy with a woman. What in the world is so ironic about that? Its very possible...and yet, Christains seem to reject that fact? Why, b/c they think of physical intimacy of a stigma/weakness or perhaps even unacceptable behavior. It is not, it is complete spiritual love...a treasure and gift, if thought of in the right way and not to be shared with everyone who we believe we love. And I believe that's where most folks mistake the love they feel for someone as a physical love, but it's not always the case?
I'm getting off track here and going deeper then I wanted to, sorry.
