“Why is it being replaced?”


a new form of worship

For the past few thousand years man has worshiped a higher power. but what happens the more people become not only aware of self, but are deep into our gadgets. So much so that we begin to follow the practices not in alignment with our cultural backgrounds. We are ritualistic when it comes to our need to always be connected to our digital devices. We carry devices around like it’s our bible, and we can’t help but to look down even if it’s for something very mundane.

belief system in jeopardy

How could ones belief system be in jeopardy because they are into technology. Well, the things that beliefs have challenged for so long are being made possible today. So people are less interested in the intricacy of the idea and more about the burden of proof. And the more technology we have the more information is out here, the more people challenge what is it they believe in.

is it going away

Religion is going away, but is technology really an aspect of the decline? Or, are we just more aware? But that awareness comes as a result of having so much technology readily available.

THE GOD INSIDE OF YOU: WHAT IF GOD IS MORE YOU THAN YOU THINK

Silhouette of Person Standing Beside Cross during Sunset

“I believe because he is I and I am him.”


As a child growing up, I lived in a household where my mother practiced the Christian faith. She would always keep some reminder of her Christian faith around the house. Whether it was her Chicken Soup for the Soul books or a carpet/runner on the floor monogrammed which stated, “As for me and my house, we serve the Lord.” And growing up for me,that is all I knew in life. Not that in our house we looked down on any other belief system. It’s just that Christ is what my mother knew best, and Christ is what is was going to be. But let’s sit back for a second and think to ourselves about what could be the true meaning of God. What if God was not the creator of us? What if there is no afterlife? And what if the true God was something endowed in us that we have harnessed and yet we are misinterpreting what it really means to love God.

Let me explain what I mean by the statement prior. There are two main teachings of how man came to be on Earth. There is the scientific reasoning as to why we are here and the biblical reasoning. Science states that we as humans share a maternal link that traces us back to a common ancestor in present day Ethiopia. While religion aims at more of a deity being the creator of everything: the heavens and the Earth; every man, woman, child, non-human creature, and plant. And though the two collide, what if the two are one of the same? What if the God we worship is and has always been inside of us, yet we didn’t know it. And that science is right about how we evolve, but God inside of us is part of that evolution. Meaning, we do good in life, treating people how we want to be treated, and giving when we can to those less fortunate is of Godly quality part of our no any other creature’s animalistic evolution. Which would mean God is conscious.

Humans unlike any other creature is given the ability to reason. No other creature can look at another creature and decide yes or no because nature dictates their decisions. So when we evolved to have the ability to reason, that conscious may have been us realizing the God inside of ourselves. We could have and may have already unlocked God, and didn’t even know it. Which would mean that we have a duty to ourselves as people on this planet to care for each other, which is why we’re still here on Earth. And the day the conscious is lost, so is God. Which could also mean that these deity figures (Jesus, Muhammad, Moses) are merely men bringing us close to the conscious mind that brings us closer to God. And in the end, God is to be more realized than feared. And maybe the closer you become to being conscious of who you are and what you do to others, you are him and he is you. He lives in you, and have always. And when we die, you may not go to an actual heaven, but your consciousness continues to live on in others you touched, thus the continuation of God.

CHURCH AND STATE: WHY RELIGION SHOULDN’T ENTER CERTAIN REALMS OF SOCIETY

Image result for CHURCH AND STATE

“Too many contradictions to have both coexist.”


The conversation regarding church and the state has been a topic of debate for decades. Should we include the religious practices of the Christian faith into our schools, workplace, or even leisure activities? And I for one am against the involvement of religious practices into our daily lives on these levels. Not because I have an issue with Christianity, but mainly because the people aspect of what could come of it. People are fine with God entering all of our lives so long as it does not interfere with whatever it is that benefits their lives. This is a key reason why we have the separation of church and state. Well, let’s go a little further into what I mean by benefits their lives.

When sending your child to school, you want and expect them to receive an education that is based in academia. The obvious reason why religion in school wouldn’t work is because you don’t have children at your schools that all believe the Christian faith. But another thing that people don’t think about is the idea that we have many sects of the Christian faith. So let’s sayauditorium, benches, chairs we do put Christianity in schools. What sect of Christianity: Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic, Pentecostal, or Johovah Witness? Here is where even more fighting could possibly take place. Because the way in which each of the above sects serve God is different. So even with Christ in schools, not all Christians worship the same.

What about the use of Christianity in our laws? Here is the problem with laws in our society. It’s easy to say, “Thou shall not kill.” But what about laws such as, “Thou shall not commit adultery.” If you ask anyone do they cheat, they’ll say no. But if you make it a law, people will fight for their right to cheat. It will be fought under the guides of “everyone makes mistakes.” But White Concrete Structurescheating is not a mistake. You don’t mistakenly sleep with another person. You mistakenly spill a cup of coffee, but you know you are in a relationship. Cheating is thinking you’re getting away with something. Well because cheating is human nature. But if the bible speaks against this human nature, can you make it law? That’s why structuring laws around religion can be dangerous.

Another place where we separate the church and state decisions are in the workplace. Everything from how you dress, to both genders working side by side. Christianity has something designed around the workplace. And you really start to run into issues, even more than children going to school. Because you have adults policing other adults who live the same way. AndMan Wearing Red While Sitting Inside Concrete Bulding what do I mean by the same way. For example, I am a male boss telling a woman what to wear. But the tables are turned the moment another man tries to enforce his will onto our wives, sisters, and daughters. We are comfortable telling other women what to do, just no one telling those close to us the same.

And in the end, all of what I have explained is the reasons why church and state have to be separated. Because when I do something you feel go against the bible it’s a sin. When you are now doing something that goes against the bible, it becomes either nobody is perfect, or the God I worship doesn’t judge. You can’t say abortion is wrong, then conduct research and abortions are up in the communities pushing against abortion. You can’t say wait until you’re married for sex, and then we find out you have been married for five years, yet you have a seven year old child. It’s the hypocrisy of us as people as to why we have to, and will always keep church and state separate.
