Let us stop fighting in the name of religion and God
Let us stop fighting in the name of religion and God
This entire earth is the property of the absolute God since it is created by Him. No human being created any region of this earth and therefore the absolute right of this entire earth belongs to the absolute God only. It is the climax of foolishness of human beings to fight and kill each other for the sake of the borders of divisions of countries and for the ownership of any region on this earth.
The representatives of all the countries on this earth should unite and form a Central Government to control the terrorism in any country. It should be responsible for the peace of the entire world. If the peace is achieved in entire world in this way, it is a real achievement of the success of this holy Christmas.
God is Love !
The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:11
The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
So Jesus Died for your sins , so if you belive in him and give your heart to him, he can forgive you sins and he will give you eternal life..Jesus loves you
JEESUS LOVES YOU !!!!!!
best Regards Tuomas
Love the entire creation without rejecting or hating anything & anybody
Imagine that you are a servant of the producer and director of a film. You have accompanied him to see the film along with him. You appreciate each scene of the film and by this, he is also pleased with you. You are deeply immersed in the cinema and suddenly he wants to leave the hall along with you. You must leave the entire film and should accompany him proving your unchallenged love and loyalty to him. You are proving here that your bond with him is beyond your bond to the entire cinema. This is a specific occasion in which your boss is competing with his own creation. In this situation, you are rejecting the entire creation. This is test of God for you. You need not bring the philosophy of this situation while you are enjoying the cinema with him. Therefore, love the entire creation without rejecting or hating anything and anybody. The reason for your love to the entire creation is your love to the creator. You are seeing the creator everywhere in the creation and therefore, you love the entire creation. You love the creation not for the sake of yourself.
But, once the creator enters into the competition (Datta Pariksha), you are rejecting everything and everybody for the sake of the Lord to prove that He is the highest for you as said in the Veda (Na tat samah …). It is in this context that Jesus told that unless one hates everything and everybody, one can not become the disciple of God. You should not extend this context throughout your life and be rejecting everything and everybody for the sake of God. You should prove your attachment to God and detachment to the world when the context comes.
Unless you hate world you cannot become near to God
Just by believing in Jesus will not save you! Unless you cut all your bonds with world and family, unless you love Him alone, unless you work for Him without any expectation, you are not saved.
Unless you achieve such a state you are not saved at all. Those people who attained such as stage is called 'His people'. Jesus died for such poeple only those who loved Him and served Him when He came to this world. Not for all X, Y and Z. He died for His people who loved Him and worked for Him without any expectation.
You also should become like such people.
Luke—14:26 to 27
“If any one comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple’’.
Jesus’s desire for His real devotees
In the Bible, Jesus desired that His dearest disciple should hate his family bonds including the bond with his life. Hating means that one should see his family members as his enemies. When such an extreme goal is fixed, atleast the blind attraction in the family bonds is reduced. Infact, these family members were really your enemies in your previous birth. Since you have robbed their wealth, they have come to you to get back their money with interest. This principle of justice forces you to earn money for them and by such force, you do all the sins and get punished in the process. When you rob the wealth of somebody by force, you not only have to pay it back with interest but you should also be punished. Thus, your blind love for your family members is responsible for your sins and the consequent punishment.
The three tests
Love for God is called devotion (Bhakti). Love for worldly things is called love (Prema). The basic meaning is same for both love and devotion. There are three strongest worldly chains.
1) Love between husband and wife.
2) Love for children.
3) Love for money.
These three bonds are called ‘Eshanas’. Jesus competes with these three bonds in His tests. One cannot reach even the outer gate of Lord Jesus if one fails in these three tests.
Bonds hindering the spiritual progress & overcoming them
There are four strong bonds, which hinder the spiritual progress.
1) The bond with the wife
2) The bond with the money
3) The bond with the child
4) The bond with ones body and life.
Among the three bonds the strongest bond is the bond with the children. The wife can help in the spiritual effort (Sadhana) and therefore she is called as ‘Saha Dharma Charini’. The sex, which is a biological need, is a matter of attraction of few minutes or at the maximum few hours. This little time is negligible compared to the long lifetime and the energy dedicated to the Lord. But the bond with the children persists in all the times and requires the expenditure of the energy continuously. The Bond with the money also increases due to this bond with children. For the sake of the children people become currupt and try to rob others. In such process they are doing lot of injustice. The strength of this bond is reduced by realization and with this not only the individual salvation in the upper world is achieved, but also the justice in this world can be easily established.
This is the reason why the Lord spoke about the detachment of worldly bonds for the establishment of the justice. He says that He is born to establish the Justice, but He does not speak about the rules of the Justice. The Government, Police and even the courts quote the rules of Justice, which cannot establish the Justice. People are trying to misinterpret these rules and win the case. In Gita the Lord attempted for the detachment of these bonds, which are responsible for the injustice. He attacked the problem at the basic level. Therefore, the strength of the bond with the children is proportional to the injustice in the world. This bond also hinders the spiritual elevation. Unless the strongest bond is cut, salvation is impossible. Without the salvation, the single bond with the Lord is impossible.
