Id love to see where your comming from with this idea, I know alot of smart people and none of them even think about satan or any of that mumbo
So why are these 'bright' people so stupid? Afterall they choose a brief period of 'happyness', fame, wealth or power over eternal life.
Worse....to burn eternally.
I agree to some extent, that people who are heavely identified with the mind and search for themselves in material possesions are not in touch with
god/true self. I don't how you can talk about the afterlife and the mechanics when youv never been there. Hell is when a person lives in the mind and
struggles a constant battle with himself thats all.
I mean,...if you belief in the devil you must also belief in God. You always hear those who belief in the all seeing eye say that God doesn't
excists. That you must find the god in yourself and much more of those lies...Lies....
You can fight the truth all you want but it wil not go away. Truth is, god is within every person. You call it lies on the basis of your dogmatic
beliefs. A true seeker has looked everywhere to find truth only to be brought to himself. You accept the truth that has been provided to you and
believe it without scrutiny, I don't have a problem with it because in very broad terms we are talking about the same essence but whenever you start
talking about others peoples belief you get out of line.
Fact is you have no idea that what you beleive is reality, fact is what you believe is a product of your mind, fact is you are afraid to see true
reality, true reality can only be seen in the now in the silence, where mind does not interfere and thus cannot create illusions.
I can understand that a poor person or a person that has no real chance to become rich or succesful will take the offer by worshipping satan. But
there are so many people with everything a person can wish for in life and still they willingly choose to serve the devil.
again I don't know what people you talk about, I have never met them.
I refuse to belief that these people didn't read the small print in the contract that says they will burn in the end.
oh please, no body is going to burn anywhere, that belief has been totally destroyed by logic many times already. A god that makes man is responsible
for he's creation, every attribute in this person is also pre-defined within "gods-plan" remember? If you agree that gods make no mistakes this would
mean he makes such "sinful" people on purpose and lets them burn in hell on purpose.
God made man with ignorance of his existence (your god did) he expects man to find the one religion which will bring man to heaven. Man has many
religions to choose from but only one is the truth, if man does not pick the religion of truth he will burn in hell. Man has to geuss to what the true
religion is and if he guesses wrong he pays for it.
Listen to yourself, how can god be like this? Satan is also a product of god because god is the creator of everything and everything in his creation
is a part of the creator, so is satan. If god wilfully made satan with the known purpose of tortuing people then its god that is actually doing the
torturing, god knows the outcome of everything doesn't he?
The reason I point out the flaws of your god is because you like to meassure your belief with the belief of others, yet all belief is mostly a
creation of the mind, thus an illusion. What you are doing is arguing over which illusion is true, when none of them are. The only truth can be
experienced, and the only truth is universal. The only truth is within everyone and is also accesible to everyone who seeks it. This is truth, not a
belief. How can universal truth of the supreme being translated in religion divide people?
The essence of truth is that it unify's does it not? If truth divides then it is far from truth.
Stop arguing over other peoples beliefs and look into yourself. close your eyes and ask: "who am i?" if you are a true seeker you wil persue this
until you get it. "the kingdom of heaven is within you" most important sentence you misinterpreted.
