These questions of yours, dont keep them to yourself,
if you want an answer to anything in life you should be asking whoever and where ever you meet or are met.
If you have a voice use it.
Appropriate be damned, ask away, dont be shy.
Seek lest thee might not find. (see what i did just there?)
Where does 'preternatural' come into your mix?
Not necessarily Christian the suffering God, bu tit helps, lends, aids.
At least Christ God has stopped inflicting suffering, if God ever has or did?
God Christ suffers for us and by us, any time we go to Him and ask for forgiveness, Christ must suffer what we have done.
You are correct Self sacrifice is not given its due in history.
It has given the pen and paper to all history that has been since, and still forever mor eto come.
There may yet be more and greater lessons God will both learn to teach and teach to learn, and show us mor eof the universe we still have not the fullest of grasps available.
But if it were available and we knew than it might not be long before gives it to all of us, shows us how its done and proves His self all over again.
We have not yet come to the end of the prophecy.
But i think it is important that the world first accept the lesson in fornt of us, Christ needs to be believed and trusted and understood before the majority can move on.
Yes i said majority.
Yes meetings with God are usually terrifying.
I would say this means you need to pay close attention to this vision and anyhting subsequentialy to come from it and because of it. Even befroe it perhaps?
You will always know the difference between vision and dream.
I have recently in my battle to become a Christian (known or unknown) realised I need to be present in a church.
My old church was one of nature worship and presence, the great out-doors wa smy church and of choice.
'The house of God is within you'
This may with me be changing?
Or means i need to go abroad again?
Go back outside?
It could mean I am not connecting with soemthing thatis my internal church?
So off to church i will go,
you must experience to know.
Off to church i go.
But i am still unsure if you need to sit in a pew to be 'in' church and to be a Christian means sitting in a church?
I am coming to this conclusion.
Everyone who has heard news of Jesus Christ has had some form of religious sense even experience.
What constitutes membership of a religion?
Everyone will tell you different.
It is up to you to destinct and know the difference.
Only you can give yourself the membership, self corination, even if not self baptism?
Only you can know if you are being faithful to yourself and to your God.
Religion and faith are not indoctrination, it can lead from or to this, but is not exclusive i dont think.
You must induct yourself.
Which means you need to know the job you think and believe your religion should be.
You need to believe in the task put down before you.
Job description ergo religion.
What do you need to work towards?
QWhat do you need to believe in?
But i would say to be a Christian needs faultless (even if you faulter, which we all do) faultless faith Jesus Christ will and can SAVE you. And SAVE the entire world.
To SAVE you is not always to 'spare' you.
Do you really find irony in the loss of faith?
I know you weren't trying to be mean with this, but what did you mean?
Character of organised religion?
So write and imagine your own.
You will need to do this no matter the words put down before you, you will need to do this no matter who you are or what you credit as personal character or God character.
This is also something that Jesus did, He characterised Himself, another thing never done before in history or since, and at least not as effectively and triumphantly.
I would slightly warn you against giving religion 'character'.
All faith should be fought for or fought against.
Faith needs you as much as you need faith.
Faith needs you to fight it, faith also needs you to be victorious.
A weak faith needs a remedy.
You train to be a better boxer,
you need to train and put your faith to task, you need to make your faith fight for its life. You need to make your life fight for its faith.
You cant be saved and you cannot save if your will and faith are weak.
(well you certainly cant save if that what you are looking to do)
Everyone can be saved, I suppose the weaker the better?
No that is meek, not weak.
So assert your faith you both need it, self and faith assertion.
Faith is worth little if not put to work.
We should NEVER stop doing this.
NEVER stop re-evaluation,
there is little value in something that does not fight for its life.
Even if you end up where you started you will not be the same person even if standing at the exact same spot and point you may always end up at and in.
Some things are meant to be. We need to re-evaluate meaning.
Meaning and understanding need not be stationary or sedintary.
Sometimes we can find all the answers we need to be happy,
just as sometimes we can never find them.
But happiness need not be about answering everything. Anything infact.
You can still be very happy and unsure or undecided about almost everything.
You can in this instance be grateful that you are meant for the journey and grateful that your discoveries need never end.
The form of the SOUL never changes,
the self must in my opinion must always change in order to survive and to thrive.
The self is where all evolution starts.
The soul is eternally same.
It is we who must change oursleves, not ourselves who must change we.
(that one takes a little thinking and may be incorrect in execution)
Eventually we will all be seen right through.
Eventually everything will become transparent.
Eventually everything will be able to be seen because there will be nothing to see.
Ethical, Moral, what is the difference?
There probably is one, one is what you are told and one is what you tell, for a start.
There probably is mor eto this difference, please expand on htis possition of yours, please.
As well as your understanding of what original sin and the Fall are???
We are all original, is there one sin which can relate all to the all?
One sin which can deny every of their uniqueness?
Original sin at its best conception should and i believe could lead us all to know how to avoid and deny and triumph over every sin there ever was, an donce realised all sin is ended, done away with, sin made extinct.
Imagine that; a world where sin is extinct.
Not to much over simplification, but sometimes (most always) existenc eis the most intricate of undertakings, the most confusing and unrecognisable, and many and more dificulties to crack to solve, to ever get hold of and to fully recognise and reduce to understanding and realise into resolution.
Life is really hard to understand, life is really hard to live.
The best we can do is one answer at a time.
Which means finding and recognising the important and urgent questions.
As well as knowing the unimportant and many distractions the world will force upon us.
We should not be a force that trys to distract from finding the right questions and looking for the right answers.
All of which will be easily recognisable once found and understood.
Truth is transparent, you will know it when you can see right through it when you can look right at it and know it is truth.
You cant answer if you dont know what you are being asked.
But you can ask even if you cant find an answer, not right away anyway.
Sometimes we must work for a clear and clean view.
You have done a good job of not over complicating.
But sometimes we need to be complicated.
And over compensate.
