spiritual does not require belief in a specific nor does it take away from specific beliefs one might have.
That's true but that would be too vague. God has always wanted to show us some. But not so much that we don't have to excersie out faith. But if he
showed us no path at all then that's where all the cults basically come from. Someone coming up with a human system. So he showed us the basics. He
allowed the bible to be the most popular book on the planet for a reason. Jesus made himself one of the most documented historic figures in all of
human history. They recorded endless prophasis being fulfilled. They accounted for thousands of signs, wonders, and miricles from Jesus and within the
Christian church. And is the only religion on the planet with no contradictions in it's complete make up, doctrine and theory.
But altimately what you have to do is use your gutt instinct. That's the ultimate litmis test in my mind. You humble yoruself and you totally get rid
of all that pride that's holding you back from accepting Jesus. Then you invite him into your life threw prayer. What happens is you can test all this
by using your gutt instinct. Your actua sixth sense that guides you in life. Your conscience that shows you the exact true path in everything. And
when you put Jesus to that test what happens is this....
Your pride says "NO No NO... and resists heavily" It doesn't want to give up or give in. Even though deep down you know it's the absolute truth.
That's the spiritual barrier that all humans must pass threw to find the truth. so if you're able to just humble yoruself, just say to the universe
"No I don't have all the answers, I don't know what's to come, I'm a meir mortal man, and I need help from the creator" and invite him into your life.
If you do that then you'll pass threw a spirital turning point to which there's no return. Once you invite God in most Christians believe it's
impossible to uninvite him. That's why the pride issue is so key to getting threw all this. See if you had all the answers already, If you knew
everything, and could control everything then you wouldn't need God. And that's what your pride does, it fools you into thinking you know everything,
you control everything, you don't need any help, you don't need to explore the truth, you don't need Gods love
But if you just look at it rationally and objectively we all know we're only human. We don't know everything. We are mortal and are gonna die at some
point. And before that happens we need to discover what the truth of our lives is. And so you just look at those facts and you can clearly see you
don't have the power to save yoruself. You need to simply become friends with God.
He's your best friend in life. He wants to show you what's absolutely true and what's not. But the way the universe is designed is that he gave us
free will. He didn't make robots. We have the ability to choose what we want or don't want. And to ignore your spirtial side is also just a choice
that everyone can make. And many do that. They never learn the abolute truth of the universe itself. And again there pride holds them back.
But anyway all I'm saying is there is ultimaite truth out there. And an ultimate creator who you can get to know, be friends with, and invite into
your life. And if you do, well you'll be so amazed. It's like you'll have finally understood what everything is about. How everything works. Like I
just can't believe that there's a lot of people who actually don't get it. But again it's a choice it's up to you. Anyway food for thought. And ya you
will see God one day. Better to align yourself with him now. This is your ultimate mission in life.
