CHURCH OF THE FUTURE

 

 

 

We are not imagining things that do not exist.

We we are not asking people to follow false beliefs.

We are showing people Right Way for the True Salvation.

 

We are worshiping to the real and only One God in the correct form of worship, as instructed personally by God.

  

During the last almost two thousand years people progressed enormously mentally and physically, and what was suitable hundreds and thousands years ago is not suitable for the modern people any more. It explains the fact that teachings that were acceptable thousands years ago without any questions, became a subject of controversy for the modern generation of highly sophisticated people. This created a new generation of people that still believe in the existence of the Supreme Power, but are not accepting many statements that are not suitable for the generation of intelligent people.

 

Old religious scripts were written not for the highly progressed society, but for mostly uneducated tribes of people living almost two thousand years ago that had different mental abilities for the evaluation of God's teachings.

 

Imagine that you would start telling the sheep shepherd living two thousand years ago (who cannot even comprehend meaning of the word electricity) about benefits of the modern computers and the Internet.  Any person living at that time obviously would declare you insane.

 

The same situation is with modern people. What is the purpose of asking modern intelligent people to accept word-for-word stories made for uneducated people who lived almost two thousand years ago? All such stories were intentionally made in very simplistic way to accommodate low level of intelligence of the people living at that time and absence of education.

 

What is the purpose of claiming that such allegorical teachings supposed to be accepted word-for-word without intellectual interpretation adjusted to the progress of Civilization?

 

Scripts written close to two thousand years ago were in many parts written in allegorical style to keep it useable for many generations of people. Obviously, God inspired writers, and they did the best for their level of the intellect and education, but intellect and education were on significantly inferior level two thousand years ago comparing to the intellectual abilities of the modern generation. Ancient writers did the best for their time, but they had no ability to describe things the same way as it supposed to be at present time.

 

God planned and designed the Universe in the way that in future, highly knowledgeable people selected by God would properly interpret the hidden intelligent meanings of such ancient divine expressions.

 

For centuries, theology schools were continuing teaching from generation to generation the same word-for-word interpretations of the religious scripts without any adjustment to the advancement of the Civilization.

 

Word-for-word interpretation was never intention of the writers of all old scripts and it was not the intention of God when God was inspiring such ancient writers.

 

Millions of people worldwide became non-believers because they became aware that ancient interpretations of events are just not working any more. It worked hundreds of years ago, but not any longer.

 

Intelligent person accepts only what can be comprehended by a person living in modern society. Anything beyond comprehension most likely is considered to be a fairytale.

 

In each part of the Bible, Jesus always is telling that he is only a human person talking on behalf of God and every time when he was telling that, he was indicating that he is talking in parables (that need special interpretation).

 

Explanations of such parables are based on the mental level of person who is trying to explain it. Lower level of intelligence would produce less believable stories, BUT only highly intelligent and educated person (that knows the Truth) can deliver the True Religious Interpretations.

 

Universe created by God is not a permanent entity, it was created for the constant progress and Universe is constantly progressing, as God designated it to be. Mental abilities of modern people are different comparing to people living thousands years ago and these modern people are in need of educated explanations made by the highly educated people. Reading quotations from the antique scripts, word-for-word, without correct guidance is definitely not enough for any intelligent individual.

 

Avoidance of intelligent interpretation not only gives bad perception of religion; it misleads people into false beliefs and causes many people to reject entire religious doctrine (because of outdated teachings). Incorrect teachings by poorly educated people (or by people educated on the basis of outdated materials) are forcing people to be non-believers. In this way, people are losing proper and true connection with God and it moves them away from the real salvation.

 

God has no need for any human imaginations or speculations. The same way, God does not need any false teachers, especially when these so called "teachers" are not sophisticated enough to receive sufficient education.

 

The Real Religious Teacher is not a person who just wants to teach other people. The Real Teacher is a highly educated person that also has very significant life experience.

 

Some people are confused with the fact that Jesus was (assumingly) a carpenter and many people decided that any person, even a person without any formal education can teach other people about such important things as  religion.

 

Two thousand years ago, ancient people never had the same universities as we have these days. Education by observation and by "words-of-mouth" was very often the only form of education that most ancient people would receive in their entire lifetime. For that time, Jesus was well-educated and well-travelled person that had significant life experience and he was perfectly fitting into the category of well-educated person.

 

At present time, definition of highly educated person is totally different. Modern day carpenter or janitor who never completed highest university degree, most likely would not be that person who can correctly interpret old religious documents...
