What does that mean? We are all put on this earth to follow His law and His rules, anything other than this is called sin and is a criminal action with dire consequences. As you are given free will you can wither follow these laws and rules by obeying Him or you can go the way of satan by disobeying.
 
 
God made us and gave us intrstructions in how to live our daily lives according to His pleasure. We must strive to please Him in every way, and everything apart from obeying Him is disobedience and siding with satan the most rebellious of creatures. He has given us a choice follow His laws or follow satan. Whichever you choose will result in your destiny, so one can choose to go to heaven or hell. By disobeying His commands you are in fact choosing to go to hell. Why are we given free will?

When you surrender to Him you will understand all of these things, you will only understand these things when you have a humble heart and get rid of your arrogance. Total surrender is to be the goal of every soul that is created. Research what it is to be a Muslim.
which God? there are so many and therefore so many 'rules'. you would have to choose one 'God' among the many before deciding which rules to follow.
 
LOL. There are many Gods? Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala says in the Holy Qur'an that if there were many gods they will all fight each other for dominion and they will not be just.
 
Sahih International
 
Say, [O Muhammad], "If there had been with Him [other] gods, as they say, then they [each] would have sought to the Owner of the Throne a way." 17:42
 
There is only ONE God my friend, and I think you should look deeply into it so that your soul is saved for eternity. Stop this nonsense what you are saying.

whatever you are saying, God has never told me so it means nothing. People following all kinds of religions seem to be doing well so it seems there are multiple gods. otherwise only those following the right religion would succeed.

Hi Nirvana,

Quote from Post 1: Some body likened religion to a robbery/mugging. in religion it is 'believe in this or endure eternal torture' robbers say 'give me your belongings or die'.is it really a choice. nobody wants to get hurt, right. so most end up believing no matter how disturbing their religion is out of fear of eternal torture. what do you think?

Response: --- Most people have a general belief that God exists. --- That God is the First Cause.
--- It is easy to have a negative impression of God from the world we live in, and the many religions to examine. --- However if God is Good, and enjoys His Creation, --- we need to find His will for our lives, so that we enjoy His favor here, --- and have hope and assurance of Eternal life with Him, and others.

In the Zondervan Bible Dictionary, it gives an explanation of God and His creation.
--- First of all, we must accept that there is One God, or One First Cause, that we call God.
--- Secondly we know that He is a Creator, because ‘all things have been created.’
--- (How He created all things is a mystery, but we don’t need to understand that.)
But we can understand that God is a Good God. --- Two of His Characteristics are Love and Justice, which have been demonstrated in His relation to mankind.

--- But the explanation is this:
God could create whatever He desired. --- He created different orders of angels, that were all servants to Him. --- Because God is Love, He would also Love what He created, --- but He desired something or someone to Love Him in response to His Love for them. --- Because Love cannot be forced, to be a true Love, nor would it be Justice to force Love, --- it would have to be a voluntary Love, in response to God’s care and affection for them.
Because of what is written in Scripture we understand that God created the Cherubim angels, with the freedom to choose. --- And the desire was that they would choose to Love and honor God in response to His Love and provision for them. Their freedom of choice would allow them to Love and worship God forever in Eternity, --- or reject God’s Love, follow their own way, --- and ‘suffer the consequences.’
--- While this was a ‘test’ to the angels, it also provided God with those who Loved Him by choice. (End of explanation.)

--- There is no knowledge of how long this remained without some reaction to freedom of choice, but eventually there was a rebellion by the one who became the leader, ‘The Lucifer’ or ‘Light-Bringer.’
However, two thirds of the Cherubim remained true to God. --- The leader, or ‘The Lucifer’ was cast out and a new Leader would have been chosen from among the faithful ones.

The one who rebelled became proud and self-seeking, and it said in Ezekiel 28:
12 “You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers;
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;

--- And it continues with these words in Isaiah 14:
13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.

This explains that God did not ‘create’ sin. --- But this one, was perfect in all his ways --- “Until iniquity was found in him.” --- So the sins of Pride and Self-Exaltation ‘developed’ in the heart of this one.
--- And he was around to be the tempter in the later creation of a perfect man, --- Adam.

Placid

why do you speak like you can read God's mind? how can you possibly know the reasons behind 'creation ' or whatever. all this is meaningless mambo jambo. people 'believe' out of the fear of punishment. end of. what happened to unconditional love? what would you say about someone who expected everyone to love them[or else]?since your God is all knowing, He knew some people would not love Him, since that is the nature He created them with. and since He is all knowing, he knew all the suffering that would happen to mankind. He planned it that way. Your God is a sadist. Your God manifests His love by making innocent people suffer.

Hi Nirvana,

Quote: Since your God is all knowing, He knew some people would not love Him, since that is the nature He created them with. and since He is all knowing, he knew all the suffering that would happen to mankind. He planned it that way. Your God is a sadist. Your God manifests His love by making innocent people suffer.

Response: --- Sorry to be so slow in answering, --- we have been away for a while and I have neglected to answer you.

--- As I explained, if God was going to create those who would love Him in response to His love for them, then it carried the risk of those who, by their own will, preferred not to love God, --- so they would not receive His blessing until they repented and came back to the point where they left.

In Genesis it says that God created Adam and Eve and placed them in the Garden of Eden, or Garden of Delights. --- They were in a perfect environment, and could have lived forever in harmony with God.
--- Adam and Eve disobeyed God, so lost that status, --- but they repented later, and continued on in a different state, --- and had children like themselves who were subject to sin, --- but God loved them.
He made every provision for them to know His blessing, if they followed His will, --- however since sin was in the world, it brought a lot of people down, by them being tempted away from God, and following their own will and ambition.


Quote: I'm going to create Man and Woman with original sin, impregnate a woman with myself so I can be born, then kill myself as a sacrifice to myself to save you from sin that I originally condemned you to.

--- This is your signature, --- which, after Adam and Eve, transports us ahead some 4000 years, to the time of Jesus, --- and if this was true, it projects a pretty hopeless state, doesn’t it.

Let’s examine it. --- Because God is Holy, He created Holy vessels to commune with, so Adam and Eve would be in harmony with Him. --- But with a free will, they weren't robots, they didn’t have to obey God, --- and with a tempter that wanted to destroy God’s plan, --- they were deceived, --- and they sinned.

I am not sure whether you are a man or woman, and whether you would favor the Bible or the Quran, but I will give you a few verses from the Quran. --- Remember in the post above I said that the beautiful Cherubim who became the Lucifer was cast down through pride, and self exaltation?
--- Well this Satan or Iblis continued to exist and became that tempter. ---It tells us more in Surah 7:
13 (God) said (to Satan): "Get thee down from this: it is not for thee to be arrogant here: get out, for thou art of the meanest (of creatures)."
16 He said: "Because thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on thy straight way:
17 "Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies)."
18 (God) said: "Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee, - Hell will I fill with you all.

19 “O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as ye wish: but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression."
20 Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, he said: "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such beings as live for ever."
21 And he swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser.
22 So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies. And their Lord called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy unto you?"
23 They said: "Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy Mercy, we shall certainly be lost."
24 (God) said: "Get ye down. With enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood, - for a time."
25 He said: "Therein shall ye live, and therein shall ye die; but from it shall ye be taken out (at last)."

26 O ye Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness, - that is the best. Such are among the Signs of God, that they may receive admonition!
27 O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he and his tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them:

--- Adam and Eve originally had a robe or ‘shroud’ of righteousness, but when they sinned the glory of that righteousness faded, and they knew they had sinned. --- They tried to hide, but they were no longer holy, so they had to be removed from the presence of God. (Verse 24-25.)

--- That is just the first part of your signature, but I don’t want to make the post too long, so I will continue later.

2 Peter 3:9 --- “God is longsuffering (patient) toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

Placid

i do not believe any religious scripture.

you have conveniently ignored the suffering of innocent people, some inflicted by people claiming to be agents of God, from suicide bombers to catholic priests.

secondly, God already knew adam and eve would sin before he created them and everything that followed. it is part of God' will/divine plan. unless God is not all knowing.

Hi Nirvana, considering you are agnostic I'm assuming you have spent much time listening to the words of Kurt No-brains. (Well, just what he left on the livingroom wall.) His music is a long sad tale. Suicide, a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Then again, life with Courtney...
Yeah, so death is the inevitable fact of life. Not going to get around it.
 
 
I know what you're thinking and it's not uncommon. Even Christians etc have thought about the same things. Whether they would ever voice it is another thing. Fear? You bet. Most Christians get the run-down on fire and brimstone early in life, before they can even understand it.
 
Can I pop over to your signature for a moment, lol.
This is a perfect example of how human logic can make total non-sense out of something much larger. At the same time human logic can make perfect sense out of non-sense. <----we know that because we pay taxes and fees for everything they have convinced us we need to. We're pretty much taught to give of ourselves to all the attractions the world has to offer.
 
 Hey, if you got nothing else, why not? Paul mentioned that.
 
Nausheen mentioned she'd like to be rich. I've thought of it myself of course, but also think of how it would ruin my life. I have to leave room in my life for God to bless me. If I had everything, God has no reason and I soon become dependant on my own resources.
 
Not expecting you to understand what I'm saying. I once related to an agnostic friend of mine a time when I should have died but "God" set me straight, (in a tremendously physical way) and told me what to do next.
 
My friend said; "If anybody else told me this story I wouldn't believe them." In other words, he believes I believe but he can't fathom what I just said.
 
I'm not going to do that to you, this is yours to deal with. Either you came here to find that out, or tell us we're all crazy.
 
There is a good chance that what you've been listening to has had a negative influence, or a negative spirit involved. You can't see any good to joining "the force" after all, the dark side has it's fun...
 
Placid went way over your head, lol. I honestly feel he has a spiritual depth that none of us understand. This is usually coupled with an ability to battle the "dark side". I'd bet he often feels led by the spirit to do certain things, mostly pray in a certain direction. It's an awesome thing, and it's real, but not so much from where we sit. We have no evidence because we choose not to look in that direction. It's a level of submission most of our egos can not handle.
 
Placid, please correct me if I'm wrong.
 
if you came here to tell us we're all crazy, go ahead, get on with it.
If you came to see what we have that you are possibly looking for please allow us to pray for you.
