Hey guys something weird happened.
>curious about God
>ask Him to reveal Himself
>find little gospel pamphlet on my way home
>tried to give it to someone who looked like they needed it but they didn't take it
It's weird because I asked, and then I literally walked into it a short time after I figured you guys might know something about it?
I also noticed it is a very harsh message until they use the quotes from the Bible.
>"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God"
Makes sense, no one's perfect
I noticed many Christian's tell you if you don't go to church on Sunday's you're going to hell, but couldn't we just spend time asking God stuff whenever we feel like it instead?
They use the same passages too in each pamphlet, because the same week or two I kept recieving these pamphlets
Isn't God the source of synchronicity? Not that God is only in Christianity (I think the church overtook God as "exclusive" for some reason)
Even asking Jesus for guidence I found a really cool grotto with Jesus at the top of the staircase and stations of the cross. What would this be, synchronicity?
It is crazy it is like Jesus was never meant to be such a burden on people, why must it be like this? He taught some wisdom, then people took Him and used Him for religious inquisition and all this other stuff
For a number of Christian writers, what they really mean by 'original' sin is more that sin is universal, like all members of a class (people with at least normal mental capabilities and above about age two), have this property of sinning, at least now and then. So some of the arguments for religion start with sin, not always to try and scare people into joining a church, but like when an introductory physics class starts with the physics universals - matter, energy, space, and time. The Bible starts with an explanation, not just of how the world was created, but a story about why sin is a universal. That doesn't mean contemporary Christians are right about just what constitutes a sin, whether the story of Adam and Eve and the Serpent is anything more than an allegory, and lots of other things, but it does mean that, if it makes sense to call sin some sort of universal in human behaviour, than any religion or philosophy or psychological theory that doesn't deal with it is inadequate.
I notice that sin is essentially a moral wrong doing and also an attempt to seperate oneself from God in the name of freedom.
Not that God doesn't provide freedom, it's one thing to do your own thing and have it be ok, but another thing when you do it in spite of.
Some Christian's don't believe God created mankind I guess, which would mean civilization could stop blaming God for their suffering in material reality.
Either way, it seems God wants some recognition fron each of us
>Idk man have you ever had any crazy synchronicity that made you question everything you ever knew outside scientific reasoning?
yeah I have recently but my synchronicity is driving my mental health down the shitter so I don't know if it's god
