if what I believe is true, then the simple act of you existing, for even epsilon seconds, brings glory to God. You should be proud of every single
thing you have ever done, including the sins. I think I remember when I felt like you feel about God. maybe you feel different, but be proud that you
existed. I just know that I wasn't proud to exist (although I though I was) before I found the power of believing. now, although I've made mistakes in
life, I feel proud to exist, even while I continue to make mistakes.
When I found God, mistakes became blessings, and confusion became hope.
I ain't trying to sell God to anyone - on the contrary, I am trying to communicate about what I have personally experienced, which is that God is the
perfection which we seek. Perhaps I should put it in terms which might make sense from other mindsets. Of a Buddist mindset - the Christian God which
I have faith in can equal to Enlightenment. From a person's mind who believes in karma - God is karma's self evident truth. look at it from
mathematical perspective - God is the singularity which solves two separate equations. aka God is the proof that everything can be related to
something else in terms of each other.
Plato found God.
Descartes found God.
Everything which has ever existed has found God.
God solves every problem truthfully.
God allows us to make mistakes so that we may learn. God loves us.
Is this not a definition of God that we can agree would be Good if He existed?
this is the God which I believe exists. I believe he will rescue each and every soul and no one will experience hell eternally. I call myself a
Christian, not because that is the traditional philosophy of Christianity, but because it should be. I call myself a scientist because scientists
like to learn. I propose that neither are exclusive to either, because everything can be related to everything else. Therefore, I ask you to believe
in such a God too so that we may converse with one another as if we we on heaven on earth. If we can do this, we could perform science like Noone has
ever seen before. We could do it while neither creating nor destroying other people's beliefs.
we should make a new section of Christianity, one where we identify and use the self - evident truths to "treat others the way we want to be treated."
we just need to describe how we want to be treated well first. I propose that the God which I believe exists leads us to these truths, and gives us
all the necessary tools to use them. Can we agree that such a God would be King of Kings?
let's define the TRUE equilibrium which is possible to find between science and faith. let's use this to find the proper equilibrium between the Bible
and Law of Man.
