Default The true believer


Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, - any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Quran 2:62)


Jesus said A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you that ye also love one another. (John 13.34)

Muhammad said, You will never get into Paradise until you have faith, and you will never have true faith until you practice loving one another.


It is clear that all religions have gravitated away from the noble cause of love for our fellow man. The above verse from the holy Quran brings all religions back to the possibility of universal love. The greatest conspiracy is the enslavement of the human soul. Satan understands that once he has the human soul he can control your total existence. So that is why our understanding of religion is very important. If we do not understand religion then Satan will use it to enslave our soul. Religion is only the natural outgrowth of the human being. In order for us to reach our human excellence we must follow the blue print given to us by God. God elects Prophets amongst us to serves as models on how to live our life. This life is only a temporary testing ground for us to evolve our soul toward human excellence. When we truly understand religion we will begin to evolve out of the title of Christian, Muslim, Jew, etc., and only be believers. Sure we will still have our individual religious rituals, but when we evolve to a believer then those rituals will not keep me from loving you as a human being and respecting your natural God given right to have peace, love, justice, and equality. So the verse above seems to suggest that it does not matter if you are Muslim, Jew, Christian, Hindu, Socialist, or do not follow any organized religion. The point is that you believe in God and work righteousness.


So the true religion is sincerity. Lets us all work toward being more sincere in our lives and this would be the blow to end the oppression of mankind.

Peace
