Why God doesn't reveal himself anymore...
    #316459 - 05/14/01 04:03 AM (21 years, 4 months ago)

Well tripping Ive discovered two things: 1-rain is awsome
2- The reason God never comes around anymore is cause he's lost all
interest in us. At first we were new and excitin' to him, after +2000yrs
he doesnt like what we've become and has probably moved on to anther
solar system, some other planet t see if things are different with them.
Which also answers the 'are we alone?' question...

Are you sure God is a man or even human like? I see "God" as an energy. I've seen it before. Maybe cuz I'm dying who knows but I don't think it's like what everybody thinks. "God" has not lost interest in us we just don't take the time to learn how to listen to her. (I say her as refering to a positive energy force like protons.)

Quite an interesting article there, Que. Thanks for the link. What amazing people those scientists are, they just can't help but catalog and fotograph and describe and talk and talk and talk, and they will tell you that God is a figment of your brain, completely forgetting, on the other hand, that brain, is, itself, just a figment of your brain... amazing!

just saying i'm seeing some things here that are a little behind the curve like "god-a word used to manipulate the masses"....
it seems to be pulling towards "god-previously misunderstood: science reveals connections between brain chemistry and the reality of what has been interpreted as god for centuries".....when such stories the cover story in one of the largest publications in the world and on the fox familychannel I think we can move beyond wondering if perhaps christians are controlling, if this is your stance (it should be) Consider taking a look in to the reality of the god phenomena which some use in manipulative ways and use for your positive.....wheather it be learning from a ecstatic state of extacy (quite probably what Jesus was all about) or just knowing some things that many have not in the past on the science of god.....if your so inclined, never to be pushed but since your here your undoubtedly curious....even those who say they do not believe in god....if you take the effort to mention something that sez you are indeed thinking about it......

gribochek
Yea your right about the scientists, blah,blah....but what I like is things like this in the light. They are simple in a lot of ways but to go beyond that they are basically telling how your brain and/or hallucigens, breaks down barriers to connect with god but then they run into their own wall cuz they are men of science (some) and don't believe in god. Mainstream stuff you'll run into that also due to the fact they cannot say "we found God" then you have a major x-ian problem on your hands.....
Now Go Out And Play!!!

it often terrifies me that most people forget that the category includes itself. for example, is the idea of tunnel reality, a tunnel reality, or is it a meta-tunnel reality, etc. labelling something does not always free one from its effects.
the materialist may put consciousness in the brain, and the occultist may put it in the cosmos, yet both be attached to mere ideas-about-reality. clearly, there comes a point where one must surrender the subject-object model, and become a single experimenter/experiment to find out where one's Will lies.
lotsa great theories goin' on here, but how many are 'in the lab' testing them?

I think the Bible is a beautiful work of fiction. The authors take all the negative aspects of human nature, and direct them to believe that an eternal father figure will punish them if they act on their own human nature. It's a remarkable book that any government should study. There are key insights on where a human's morals prevent him from rebelling. Too bad it backfired. Just look at the crusades. That isn't what "god" meant.

And if God does exist, I still wonder why we haven't heard from "Him". we have come a long way, and the Bible depicts him as someone who would have killed all the democrats by now.
Don't get me wrong, I believe we all share "God", but its nothing like Christianity depicts. There are no pearly gates, and no fire and brimstone.

Nothing of what I say is a personal matter. All cultivation questions are on behalf of counterparts who risk growing. I take no responsibility in being the messenger.

The bible doesn't tell us what God will do to us, as a result of our own behavior but rather what we will do to ourselves as a result of free will. It is a owners manual on free will, which most have yet to master (hense Christ lived). The idea of coming to understand God is a culmulative adventure for humankind and we are the "lab". I have seen countless examples of my own free will, getting the best of me, time and again. Two things I know: 1) If you want to be "right" it may be difficult to be happy (which explains the failures of political/religious movements such as the crusades); and 2) self disipline is the vechicle of all spiritual movement in our personal lives. No one, especially in a setting which is founded on the use of mind altering chemicals such as The Shroomery, wants to hear that but the irony is that with shrooms you can't get high every day, on them. You have to WAIT a period of time before you will get the best effects.
The government will try to control society because that's it's job. They may use religion, police enforcement, taxes, etc. but as Christ said, "To Caesar with what is his." God isn't meddling with our lives because that is what we wanted. His influences are abstract to the point that only the quiet and observant minds will see. He is not a government. He is not our parents.
BTW when one speaks of "The Bible" one should clarify the difference between Old and New Testament because the writing styles are markedly different. The Old Testament uses mostly epic styled writing which is rooted in metaphore and requires interpertation, while the New Testament is written less metaphorically and more in the writers own observation on historical data and accounts of Acts of Christs Apostles and disciples (exception is the Book of Revelation, which is mostly a book of dreams, written in Epic style). Most of history's blunders in connection with the Bible, has been due to a lack of education on the possible meanings of its writtings. It is very important to understand many aspects of life during the time each portion of the Bible was written to gain full realization of It's potential to the single life of each reader, which amazingly It has the ability to render.
I continue to be amazed at how one time in my life, I passed off the significance of this incredible vessel because of sound bites I read or heard, provided by my local media company, trusting that they had my spiritual well being in mind instead of their own commercial motives.
"If something is worth doing is won't be easy and if something is easy, it may not be worth doing." Spirituality is not easy, it cannot be done from revelations alone and our thoughts alone do not constitute truth in the Divine sense. Happiness is the ultimate state of mind which is our purpose in the Divine sense. God could not "give" us happiness in the Devine sense so we recieved free will to which we could "achieve" happiness and thus be equal to God in Devine Sense. All He is so we can be.

"There are people in the world so hungry that God can only appear to them as bread"

I think that we are all a little mislead when it come to "God" I see this God as energy. We are God and God is us. When you look in the mirror you see God, when you look at a tree tou see god. I heard someone say this, I think that it puts it best "there is only one god..Breath".

I'm sorry, but I refuse to allow myself to accept a book as faith. I intend to travel the path, see the other sides, study different paths, and choose when I am ready. But for now, my spiritual side (strong for my age, in my opinion) sways more towards God being energy.

By the way, could a christian explain these to me:
-Why does the new testament list Joseph's Geneology, when it is irrelevent given Jesus is "begotten"
-Why does orginal sin effect me? I am told that it does because I am human. Physically, yes, I COULD be a decendant of Adam and Eve, but God created my fresh *new* soul, which hasn't done anything, yet. Why should My body my spiritual downfall?
I'm not flaming Christians, I would just like to know

x-mas trees came from Celtics who decorated trees in worship of nature.

the idea that Satan has a tail, hooves for feet, and horns came from a druid nature god, if im not mistaken.

On the geneology question, I'm not totally sure about this one but I will try. In Hebrew culture, a family's (especially a man's) lineage was like a resume. Even though Jesus was begotten, not made, Joseph's lineage was still important since it would have seemed less plausable to have the Son of God living with bums. In those days if someone told you,for instance, about a great stone mason or carpenter, one of your first questions would have been about that persons father and grandfather and so on. It was as if you were only as good as your direct descendents. Joseph's geneology was added at some point to the New Testament in some versions, as further proof of the Holy Family's "good stock" lineage. Today, most of us would be in trouble if this were a common practice and it goes to show how our lives aren't the sole property of us. Our legecy could affect our children and grandchildren. Just something to think about.
Original sin is one of the most misunderstood themes in the Bible. Sin in the Old Testament was defined as "missing the mark". This Original Sin, was an explanation of our condition as human evolving from a child into adult and so one. All humans left the Garden and went on their journey into the Desert. These metaphores described the role of labor and pain in our lives as we strive to achieve a permanent spiritual existence. As a creature with instints we are programmed by nature and mostly these instints protect us and enable us to survive but the idea of the Lion laying with the Lamb foretold that when we eat or drink we sustain only our physical lives and not necessarily our spiritual lives. We can miss the mark by forgetting that we are really spiritual and that we will die some day regardless of how well we do as animals. Many people still forget this idea and only think about the material world. In the New Testament, this idea was built upon with the act of Baptism where as we perform an act of being blessed with water which signifies a mock death and rebirth imitating the Earth itself as it goes through floods and the imminent Wake of the Flood which is a time for planting and rebirth. Imagine eating and never being hungry again or drinking and never being thirsty again. That is kind of what a spiritual birth is like. Original Sin is more like Original Birth into a spiritual life. The Old Testament writers used the most dramatic type writing and metaphors they could to get peoples' attention, they also saw God as punishing and threatening. One way to weigh what their motives and influences were is to know that they were anonymous and did not sell their work or make a living preaching or attracting followers. They were much like we are now, here sharing what they felt and experienced from the powers they were encountering. They were the original psychonauts.

Firewolf, I doubt anyone can answer your questions about the Bible. Partly because the bible contradicts itself so many times it's not even funny.
The fact is, is 80% of the shit in the bible is bullshit, because it was not written by "GOD". The bible was written by judgemental and some power hungry humans. A lot is in there for intimidation purposes.
You can try, but asking those kinds of questions to Christians will usually get you nowehere. They will either tell you you are going to burn in hell and you need to repent, or not to blaspheme to Bible, or they will just ignore you.

For those being saved He does reveal Himself. The Holy Spirit must bring the person into the truth with power. The Word is opened and understood and the new birth happens. All these things are given to His people.

Original sin and "free will".
GRTUD has made various statements on these topics. First off unregenerate man has no "free will". The Bible declares all as spiritually dead, with no ability for spiritual understanding. Man is naturally opposed to God's truth as his mind is bound and he is born dead due to original sin. This is why someone must be "born again". In due time all those that God intends to save will be converted by coming under the hearing of the gospel and the Spirit will apply it and the new birth happens.

Original sin is both a corrupted nature, but it is also to be declared condemned by imputation of the first transgression.

i acknowledge that you did stumble upon deep thought, just try to refine it a bit next time.
I like the fact your aware there are a shitload of other planets And solar systems out there, oh and if you achieve cosmic conscious, it feels like you don't need a spaceship to be "out there" in space, you and everything else are just one :smile:

However the idea that a God just tends to different planets and people and can just leave ours when he gets bored makes it sound like a hollywood story for a force that probly does not have an ego or personality at all, therefore cannot ever be bored. Linear way of thinking about a God, but don't get discouraged.

keep thinking.
There IS a force at work.
You have to find the right door to open.
when it opens, breathing will be pleasurable, and easier than ever. You will see things differently, and get alot more out of life than most.

God is a convenient, three letter word. A place holder name for otherwise varying lengthy and ambiguous descriptions.

It is the height of arrogance and or control, that man create/d "God" in their own image, whether to "manipulate masses" or for their own self/ego driven motives...

Why "God" (convenient name) doesn't reveal "himself" (this writers personification) to us (those deemed sane enough for  credible accounts) anymore (now in increasing godlessness)?

I would like to ask, what would be deemed as a significant, revelation?
I have seen many strange and wondrous things in life and daily occurrences of the mundane miracle...this could indicate the existence of God...
But...????

What are you looking for...what great revealing do you need as proof?:eek:

There is hope for old topics. I thought all our ideas were just relegated to the graveyard.

I like the topic though. My personal quest since I was young was to get to know God/dess or his/her facsimile, and to that end I have lived like a visionary. It is true that I sacificed much in terms of material gain and success to live true. I pretty much feel I have lived up and found what I was looking for. So my opinion is that quest for truth and honest living will pan out for all who so search.... IE, it is not a waste of time....

Your two cents isn't worth it IMO. Have you ever considered the fact that non existent beings have never revealed themselves.:tongue:

First if there was a GOD he would not be of any human quality more like just some type of conscious energy, next every time god misses his appearance date its like its reason to believe more that he was "late" instead of not existing, if there was a god there would be one for every planet with life since he is a creation of the mortal mind. if he really created us in best intension's he would of made life more pleasurable and easy, way to go in the African continent you really fucked those guys over could of at least provide clean water and conditions to grow proper food i mean wtf who does that ( Africa was location of eden, but made into a wasteland because his first creation ate from the tree of life tho provoked to do so by gods own creation?) i highly doubt he puts ppl through hell so that the religious factions can take a % of the donations Jesus can turn water into wine but not wine into water? smite these fuckers and give these people some resources please.... :mushroom2:

Now if god did reveal himself the next day's thread would be if God exists then who created God? there is no way he created himself so if god is all powerful who is more powerful then god to create such a powerful entity.... and the questions will go on for eternity no???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
