Human nature is such that people demand to be included in reward programs and heaven is certainly portrayed as a huge gain. The problem is where is it? Religions put out a lot of hype about what it is like and of the joys and passions that one can experience once there. Suicide bombers, such as those who flew planes into the New York Trade Center buildings strongly believed that they were serving their god and would be given major benefits in Paradise in return for their actions.
The fact that humans are more tribal in their thinking than they accept allows them to be guided and pushed into directions they may not normally consider. Good speakers, trusted religious leaders, books that are titled 'holy', and superstitions coupled with brain-washing from birth robs them of alternatives.
The other factor that drives them is peer pressure. Observations show that most 'go along with' popular trends rather than walk that solitary road where knowledge is from within rather than from other people. This can be seen in the massive crowds that gather when something spectacular is happening. That might be a parade, the appearance of a celebrity, a religious march, or a demonstration.
They are the same as sheep, in other words. They are called such in the New Testament because the Romans who wrote it understood the nature of those they ruled.
Yes! I said the Romans wrote it.
Research established that it was compiled and partly written by Jerome, the so-called doctor of the Roman Catholic Church. He also translated the Septuagint from the Greek version as he could not read Hebrew. This was established in a biography by one Fray JosÃ© who was appointed by Philip II of Spain to undertake the work. He also had access to the Vatican library where Jerome's version of the first bible, the Vulgate, is stored.
Copies of Jerome's diaries are available in National Libraries and in them he details how he was commissioned to unite the branches of the fledgling church. That is because it was established by Constantine in 325AD based on Islamic ideology and Babylonian rituals. One of those rituals included the death of men on crosses in expectation they could become mates to Mary, the Mother God. Her image was the sun-star or 'Zoro Aster' (morning star).
The power behind Islam is heaven, which is based on early perceptions of the universe in which earth was the center and the stars were 'souls' of the dead. 'Soul' is synonymous with 'sol' or 'sun'. Thus the dreams of heaven were born.
The Church jealously guarded its tenet as science disproved such claims. The most outrageous notion of all is that the earth was created in 7 days and that men are made in the image of God. Books that set out principles of facts that threatened its story of heaven and hell were banned or burned and authors were often jailed or worse. Galileo, for instance, was jailed, tortured, forced to apologise for discovering that the earth is not the center of the universe and then confined to his house for the remainder of his life.
His books were burned and his reputation destroyed in an attempt to prevent other researchers, observers and scientists from making similar claims. This alone is a statement of how wrong the Catholic Church has been for almost 2,000 years.
Now with space travel and greater telescopes we know that the stars are not the souls of men and that there are billions of universes similar to our own, the Milky Way, which also contains billions of stars. In all of that space there is a force that many can not perceive because of the blinding by religious leaders.
My knowledge, however, starts with memory of reincarnation and a link to the Spirit. As a man in my last life and a woman in this one it explains why so many are homosexual or uncomfortable in their present bodies. It also explains why there is no heaven or hell. We pass from life to life as stated in the bible.
"(God) shall deliver thee in six troubles; yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee." Job 5:19
The six troubles are the punishment and deaths that spiritual people have undergone by refusing to bow down to religious demands.
"In famine (God) shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it comes. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: Neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth." Job 5:20 -22.
In every way the spiritual have been protected but not everyone is spiritual. Those who are have an inner voice that directs and guides them. They don't fall for the promise of heavenly rewards because their treasure is stored for them on earth.
The conspiracy engaged in by Constantine and his cohorts sought to steal that treasure by declaring that God is a man and that the Son of God dies so that everyone is saved. No man can be in all of the space that makes up the billions of universes and yet the Spirit is there. It controls everything including the religious works that hide it.
There is no heaven or hell and only in man's imagination can rewards of that nature be constructed. Those who die in expectation of fulfilling divine will are dead in spirit and have nowhere to go as they are not part of the inheritance. The treasure reserved for God's spiritual people is eternal life on a restored earth. It is one thing that stands out in all the religious teachings-- "the meek shall inherit the earth." Another is-- "The truth will set you free.".
