A STUDY OF RELIGIONS AND WHY HUMANITY NEEDS RELIGIONS ETC.
If we want to reconcile anything at all, it is obvious that to reach any sort of reconciliation we need to discuss our differences and this is what part 2 of Prayers of reconciliation is all about, we will discuss all sorts of religious issues, while we review religious books.

A STUDY OF RELIGIONS AND WHY HUMANITY NEEDS RELIGIONS
This is the beginning of part 2 of my Prayers for reconciliation
This article can also be found in our Hub Pages, at this link, Reconciliation talks
We would like to talk about religions and we would like to reconcile that part of religion that doesn’t seem to agree with today religious views. But, if we want to reconcile anything at all, it is obvious that to reach any sort of reconciliation we need to discuss our differences and this is what this religious talks in part 2 is all about. We would also want to point out that our discussions here are about religious beliefs and our aim is about modifying religions, we would like to modify religions in such a way that they may remain helpful to all humanity. We know that this is going to alarm most religious people as it is a controversial subject about their religious beliefs, and for this reason I am going to repeat this article written for my readers’ peace of mind, just once more in this part:
For my readers’ peace of mind
To anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs, I say, please read my Prayers for Reconciliation writings fully before you pass judgment and quit reading; you see Prayers for Reconciliation is only an idealistic theory, which through discussions with other fellow believer (and perhaps non-believers) is trying to find a way on how to link all existing religions together; therefore our religious beliefs and the existing religions may remain as close as they are today. So, don’t you worry if my religious writings could sometime sound different from the ways that we usually hear religions being preached, because you don’t have to worry about it, as it will all be explained as you read all our religious writings, and then, you can judge for yourself at the end of our religious writings of Prayers for reconciliation and Reconciliation of the Universe. May God guide and help me in this writing task?
In these religious reviews or discussions, we would like to review all existing religions, starting with the religion we know most the Roman Catholic church and the Bible. In order to make it easier to understand what we are doing, we are also going to paste some links herewith. Let us hope they work?
We have reasons to believe that we need to review religions, because we believe that this needs to be done for the benefit of all humanity, therefore we have a duty to do it anyhow. But, first of all let us see the most important articles that we have already written in part one and if we can state also the reasons why we have written them, so that we would be able to continue in the right direction.
The most important articles that we have already written deal about religions and religious beliefs, perhaps the reasons that they have been written was because of the extremist groups, or the atheists threats that want religions to disappear; so, in order to reply to these atheist’s non beliefs of God and religions and also to see if we could find anything that could help us to find a way of how to explain the extremist movement and what could we do to minimize the threat, we have written a few articles about some religious subjects, one of this subject is about the existence of God, in the hope that the atheist see what we mean by that.
So, in order to prove that God exists, we have written hub 3, Man needs God where we claim that God exists at least by definition, but, then we see that there must be more than just definition and so we kept writing about other explanations including this article of Man needs God because it has been so for centuries, or since the beginning of the existence of the human race in the world.
We believe that God may perhaps be different to the God described in the Bible and so we have formulated a new sort of theory hoping to find a way to describe this new living God, who can be just about anything that bears life energy capable of helping life to exist. You can check this hub out with this link herewith: Man needs God, 3
We have also written religion of the future, where we explain the needs for a new form of religion. This is the link if you want to check it out. Religions of the future, 4 in this hub we start saying that some religious changes need to happen soon or later, so let us start thinking about these coming changes.
Then of course we have published Prayers for Reconciliation, which is really the main theme of this religious writings, here is the link to check it out, Prayers for Reconciliation, 5 and we have also had some discussions with my friends and members of the public about religions, with this in mind now we are going to write some religious views.
Religious writing views
Other religious writing activities and views
This religious writings are being written to describe a new way of religious beliefs, because we believe that God may perhaps be different to the God described in the Bible, and for this reason we have formulated a new sort of theory, therefore now we would like to find a way on how to describe this new living God, who could just be about anything that bears life energy. Therefore now we are looking for ways how to explain what we have said; but above all we would like to take our readers step by step to see how we arrived at this conclusion, so this entire part 2 of Prayers for reconciliation has been written to show you the reasons why we are doing this.
Apart what I have written above, we have also written and republished or edited many others religious hubs, we have had some friendly discussions with my friends about religions, and from these discussions and other point of views we have come to the conclusion that to make sense in a modern way about religions, one should really start to review all existing religions and find if there are other meanings why religious books have been written the way they have been written, and why religious leaders interpreter religions the way they do? At this point this question arise; if religious leaders interpreter religion the way they do today, is it just because that is what their forbears have thought them to believe in? Or is it not? So, the main aim in reconciliation part 2 of this religious forum will be to review those religious beliefs and meanings, in the hope that we would come up with some explanations that would help us understand the religious situation better, and in doing so, perhaps be able to put forward those hidden meanings that we find wrong in religions, without being scared of changing the accepted meanings of today religions.
In order to do what I have just said above, we need to start from the very beginning of all sorts of religions. Now, in this case, because my friends and I are Roman Catholic and therefore this is the religion that we know most, we should be looking at the Bible and what it teaches us first of all, if we are going to be able to achieve anything at all, after all Christianity, the Roman Catholic and the Bible are the religions that the non believers atheists attack most of the time, in the hope that they can prove that there is no God and therefore all religions are all human fantasy. We believe that because there is a large enough number of exaggerated interpretations of certain meanings in the Bible, the atheists is finding it easy to attack our religions, so, there is a need to change those interpretations, and in other words, we might need to modify religious interpretations in such a way that they become acceptable to most of us.
Having said that I start thinking what might be the most important issue that needs to be looked at, and suddenly it comes to my mind the first thing that the atheists attack religious people, is about creation, as atheists do not believe that God created anything as said in the Bible; they believe that whatever exists today has been created just from natural forces, so, God has nothing to do with creation, because God and creation is all a human invention. Now I want to say that we are not able to prove to the atheists beyond any doubts that God exists, so the next best thing that we can do is to adjust religious meanings in such a way that they might partly make sense to the atheists as well, and therefore minimize their attacks on religious people.
Now, what I would like to do next is that I would like to call on my friends and have a good talk about this religious subject, you know sometimes my friends have a very good understanding of the situation and their input is much appreciated, so let me organize a meeting, with the intention of talking about religions.
Meeting my religious friends
Meeting my friends
The other day the meeting that I have organized took place. I have met my friends and talked about the religious subjects that we have been talking about above, I have to say that on certain religious aspect they seem to go past my own ways of dealing with the situation, at least some of their speeches seemed to point that way, so, let us hear what Mark had to say first.
Mark speech in a nutshell,
If we want to find hidden meanings in the Bible and see why the Bible has been written the way it has been written, and we understand it the way we have been thought to understand it, then, we have really to start from the very beginning and use our logic reasoning minds to see if what we have been thought stands up to logic human reasoning; if and when it does not add up we have to try to understand what were the reasons, and then we can decide how to proceed.
So, let me tell you how I see these religious things: In my opinion I feel that in those times when the bible was written the way the Bible was written would have made sense to the believer of those times; you see people have always needed religions and a God that would or could protect them from what they themselves would not be able to protect, so this God that was shown to be superior to the other believed existing gods of those times was welcome from the believers, after all the Israelite needed this God to free them from the Egyptian, so Moses their leader provided just that when he went on Mount Sinai and met Yahweh (God) as a burning bush, from there we know the rest of the story that for thousands of years this religion that started with Moses on Mount Sinai has taken over most of the world.
Here I would like to point out that this religion has done a lot, and has guided lots of people in a meaningful way and it has lasted until today, I have said it has lasted until today because we don’t know what is going to happen in the future. Because as you all know today there are some people that do not need religions anymore, since time have changed and that feeling of danger from the unknown is not constantly present as it was in the past. So, they feel safe and feel that they can survive by themselves, so, they would like to see religions disappear, and who knows it might even happen in the far away future.
Now let me say how I see religions today; I have to say that my personal views are that most people still need religions just the way they are today, you see, we have always needed religions even if the atheists believe that we do not need them now? But, really how could we just let religions disappear? I believe that it could not and would never happen.
We need to look at today religious set up as a way of life that has been proven for centuries to work well with people; therefore people could not and would not accept any religious changes easily. If we can work out what can be done to change some religious beliefs without upsetting the whole system, then maybe we would be able to move to the next religious system, which very likely is inevitable: I am saying it is inevitable because everything changes with time and also religions change; one has to look in the past to see that 2 thousand years ago people had different religions. I suppose I can say many other things about religions, but I suppose I have to let our other friends have a say if they so wish, so, that is all from me for the time being.
Our views and more speeches
When Mark stopped talking; I, Gino and another two of our friends that were interested in these religious talks said that we understood what he had said. But at the same time I and perhaps Gino thought that really there was a need to say more, in order to have some idea where we were going to go religious wise. There and then we knew that Mark did not go far enough to say that we needed a sort of religious review. So I asked Gino to say something himself, very well knowing that sometimes Gino is very crafty in his ideas.
Now before I write down what Gino had to say, I want to inform my readers that in this religious writings, I will try to keep speakers to a minimum, so, I, Mark and Gino will usually speak for all our friends that are interested in these religious talks, I believe that it could be easier for everybody to understand what is going on.
I know that our friend Mark has said many things that make sense, but what he said stops short of giving us a solution about reviewing the Bible and any other religious books, indeed it is hard for any of us to find a solution for these religious problems, therefore I believe that a straight way cannot be found, so, we may have to find another way around that might not upset religious people and at the same time suggests something about what is happening, or what may be going to happen in the future to religions, because of these present situations about the atheists and the extremist groups. So, the only thing that I can suggest is that we can indeed review the Bible interpretation, but we have to be very careful, and therefore make sure that everything is written in such a way that is all seen as a suggestion of the possible present situation. It needs to be written mostly in a conditional way with plenty of ifs and maybes, so that the readers can make their own minds up as they go along; we also need to remind the readers that what is being written are only suggestions, so only time will tell what is going to happen to religions in the future.
Well that is how I see this situation and what we might be able to do about it; this is the main thing I wanted to say to you, now you can make up your own mind.
Gino stopped talking and we said, your idea sounds good perhaps we should indeed try to review the Bible and any other religious books soon when we meet again. After that we started to have some other friendly talks that are not important to mention here.
I believe that we have said enough in this article, so, see you in our next article about, Bible reviews are necessary, after all we also want to study all sorts of religions.
May God help us to understand this religious situation?
