UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERY OF SALVATION FOR ALL (Part 1)

 




Do you really want to hear about this topic from a different view?

Well, Well, Well… Of course, it goes beyond all kind of imagination.

I will never be able to separate myself from my original belief throughout my writings which is: I am a Believer in GOD, in Science and technology. I Know that God exists, He is Real, All Powerful. However, I also believe that our lack of knowledge is what separates us from knowing Him fully. That is why I believe the more Science and Technology grow, the closer we are to Him.

As we know, there are many views and interpretations of the human origin. As of today, I still believe that Man was created, as well as the Universe. I already established the fact that if someone else believes otherwise, it is fine. What I am about to elaborate on as a result of my belief in GOD and the human creation will bring hope to the human race  totally.

No one on earth has ever lived in a different world than this one, where there is only good and no bad. It is quite foolish to even think about a world where there will be only “good” and that “bad” would have disappeared. We have no evidence, no reference from someone who had lived in a world without the “bad”.  Some even said that it won’t make any sense, a world without one of these two. Keep in mind that the term “good” or “bad” isn’t only referred to man. We can also refer to good or bad weather for example. The only reference the human race has about the origin of the good and the bad comes from what supposedly happened in the garden of Eden.

According to this reference, everything was simply “good” at the beginning.  The only first two human on earth, Adam and Eve have tasted for a very brief period of time what living in a world only good means. But everything changes as soon as they ate the prohibited fruit. Okay.

As vague and simple it may look like, that is the only tangible and sustainable explanation we have, historically talking. No one has to believe in it as true, literally or symbolically, the fact is: we live, since then, in a world with good and bad.

I know, the Seventh Day Adventist church will never accept and support the theory that I am about to promote in relation to the Mystery of Salvation for All, nor will any Christian Church. Although Dr. Elizabeth  Talbot, a Seven Day Adventist Pastor is promoting the Mega News from the book of Luke: Salvation for ALL, it is not quite an idea that the Church is willing to join fully. She said clearly that according to the Gospel of Luke, Salvation has been secured  for ALL.

What I am saying  that I don’t know if she would say is that ALL means everyone: the religious and the non religious, the believers and the non believers, each and every single human being has been granted salvation without having to believe it. That is my full interpretation of Salvation for ALL.

First statement: No one has ever fully understood God’s Nature:

When someone talks about God, he/she refers to what supposedly God is to him/her. Human beings as we are, the more we get to understand and to know the world we live in on a daily basis, the more we will understand and know GOD, as a result, the closer we will be to Him. I want to establish this view before moving on because some of us will try to talk about God as He is in reality, when in fact, they will be talking about Him according to what He is to them.

Nowadays, what sense does it make to someone, hearing about Salvation if this person has no idea about its origin?

Christians established the fact that Salvation is for All but at least only those who accept it will get it. In other words, if you don’t accept it, you will be lost.

Common sense: Why do I need to accept Salvation if I don’t know when and why I don’t have it. I don’t even know its purpose.

Let’s look at the Christian interpretation about Salvation:

Adam and Eve were created perfect to live eternal life, but they failed to obey God and committed sin, consequently, God punished them to death, as a result, they became impure, imperfect, sinners and the whole human race carries the same consequences. Since Adam and Eve are our first ancestors, because of what they did, no human being can be perfect anymore, we are all lost. We have to suffer in this life and die. Now, Jesus Christ Came on earth and gave His life to rescue humanity from death and give them eternal life back. But, we still have to suffer and die in this life, if we accept His sacrifice, then when He comes back, He will give us (those who believe and follow Him) eternal life and everything will be perfect again. Meanwhile, we still can feel His presence, His help when we seek Him.

My problem with Christians’ view:

Christians are “stealing” Israel’s God (They use the history of God with Israel, first testament) and they add the history of Jesus the Messiah also God to them, and they have their Holy book called the Bible. Now they are trying to expand and to make Israel’s God, the world’s God. I really don’t mind, in addition, thanks to them, I got to know God.

They want the world to  believe that we are lost and we will be lost when the end comes if we don’t believe and accept Jesus as our Savior. They have introduced  the Concept of Salvation for All, but they put a price on it. They basically gave up on this world (to them nothing good can come from it) and only a few will get to the other world. Christians like other religions, forget above all and after all we are all human with the same problems, and that our first concern should be the well being of humanity.

In all four Gospels they use in the Bible, it is clearly shown that Jesus’ first concern was the well being of the humanity: justice, tolerance, respect, equality etc.

Christians have failed to look at the big picture:

If we are to believe in what is reported as the Origin of Man: then, God is the Creator of Man, God is the God of Man, not the God of a pre-selected nation called Israel, He is the God of the Egyptians who kept Israel in captivity for 400 years, He is the God of Buddhists whom we have no sign in the Bible and all other surrounding Nations to Israel and to the whole World historically and geographically.

While all human beings are in the same mess because of what one and the first man did, if this is true, why do Christians pretend that what they call Salvation can’t be for All through the One they said, came to save the whole word? In other words, why if it is true that we are all lost because of one and the first man, without us choosing it, can’t we be all rescued the same way, without choosing it, because Jesus Christ decided voluntarily to offer himself in sacrifice to rescue us? Adam, being the first human,  had so much power that what he did affected humanity in full, and we are not able to change it, but, isn’t Jesus Greater than Adam? In that case, why can’t Christians understand that Jesus’ sacrifice should not be anyway exclusive, whether one believes or not.

If another world has to come to substitute this one, shouldn’t it be because the Creator has found a way to fix the problem from its origin? If one man can enter to the new world, all human should because we are not the ones who originally mess this one up, why should some of us be excluded?

In order to fully understand the Mystery of Salvation, we simply need to understand the Mystery of being lost.

Even before we are born, we are already lost –  because of what happened in the garden of Eden. We don’t need to choose it, the devil is inside us,  each man carries a beast inside, a spirit that leads us to hate, to be bad to ourselves and to others. The fight in between ourselves is the greatest one ever. We don’t have it all to the same degree, but we all do at some level.  How Am I responsible for the bad spirit I carry inside when I have not chosen it? My point here is simple: God has taken full responsibility for what happened in Eden.

Human have been able to overcome a lot of differences such as Slavery, discrimination, tolerance etc. Although Christians and other religions are to promote all good manners, human rights, including tolerance according to their Holy Book, bizarrely, civil rights movements are the ones that have been pushing towards those goals. As times pass by, human beings are getting to understand each other more, tolerate each other more, and even love each other more.  Although much more need to be done, we are happy to live in a better world today than two millennium ago, and for sure, two millennium after, the world will be much better.

Now, let’s go back on our topic: If Salvation is for All, that means, it is not only for Christians, obviously we can’t all be christian, nor it is only for Jews.  If Christians want to keep promoting Salvation for All, they need to start promoting the fairness of God: God is fair enough not to let perish the whole humanity, nor part of it because of what happened at the very beginning of human’s life.

The same way we couldn’t change our destiny when one and the first man committed sin, neither can we change the redemption that was brought to us through One Man, even Bigger and Greater than the one who committed sin, the Son of God, also God.

Only when we get to understand the Mystery of Salvation, we will realize that it is no longer an issue, it is really secured for all and that our focus should be to get the whole human race  ready to live with each other without any type of injustice, intolerance, and discrimination while we are transiting through this world.

Just be a Human

I don’t need to  think like you;  I don’t need to believe like you;                                                           I don’t need to behave like you;  To be a good man, I only need to be a Human.

I don’t need to be  a Christian; I don’t need to be a Jews;                                                                       I don’t need to be a Muslim;  To be a good man, I only need to be a Human.

I don’t need to be American, I don’t need to be European;                                                                     I don’t need to be African, Hispanic, Asian;  To be a good man, I only need to be a Human.

I don’t need to be Black; I don’t need to be Yellow;                                                                                     I don’t need to White;  To be a good man, I only need to be a Human.
