- It is the tendancy of too many exploited and oppressed people to desperately and frantically only turn to higher powersabove and beyond their conrol to free or save them that does!
You sound like the the Bishop Carlton Pearson I just caught a quick look at on Dateline (?) claiming that he heard the voice of his god saying that we are all living in hell right here and now and that all are "redeemed" after they die. ... WOW! Since there was no way to tell this Pearson (who appeared to be an immigrant African-American of western european ancestry) that we cannot go around making up our own holy doctrine of what will happen to us after our change (or death) has come ... as our Lord already sent His holy message to this generation we now live in through His servant Chanokh or Enoch (as mistranslated in the Yaphetite euroepan bible) ... from before the flood or the first judgement on the world. So to you I say that you cannot go around making up your own scenarios as to what will or will not happen to us on this earth as our future has already been foretold to us -- and as written in the book of Dani'El 7 ... the judgement of our Lord stands against the unrighteous and His righteous (or saints) will inherit the earth. People are exploited and oppressed because they have left the righteous path of life which is the word of our Maker or Lord as given to us through the entire Holy Scriptures -- and not just bits and pieces as given in the Yaphetite euroepan Bible.
- Instead I do feel and think that the Creators make us creatures of free will so we could free and save ourselves...
If man could save himself -- then man would be a god, and since man is not a god nor is any animal walking on the face of this earth -- we should have common sense enough to STOP our rebellion against His laws so that we might start to live a blessed life.
- We continue to be at war with each other for any number of reasons (including who claims their faith makes them superior and others inferior):
We continue to be at war because there are those who rebel against the righteous laws of our Lord and freely chose to hate, worship false gods, lie, murder, steal, rob, rape, blaspheme, trick, whore, prostitute, , etc.. with no respect for anyone else's rights -- just their own unrighteous desires... being subject to the spirit of unrighteousness or Belial (Hebrew name) or Satan (as some Jews later called it) or Antichrist (ancient Christian name) who lives in the earth because there is no wisdom to be found anywhere in this earth. Wisdom resides in the heavens.
- then come to be at peace with ourselves and our fellow human beings --our relationships to the rest of the living creatures et al will help to return the natural balance to this ecosphere-- and all live will go on--
PEACE comes from our Maker and Lord ... it is a spirit, like wisdom and truth. Man is mortal and when he acts unrighteously -- he dies ... but when he remembers that he is made in the image of our Lord and lives righteously -- he lives in peace and prospers with all around him, including the animals. At least that's [our LORD] take on it all...
