    To All,

    I thought to give a little time to a discussion outside of UPS related issues today.

    Warning: if you are one of the many who don't like talking about spiritual things or as many say "talking about religion" then you should proceed with caution.

    You may view this as an overly sensitive religious conversation.

    For discussion:

    Do you believe in the eternal soul of a human being?

    If so, then what do you believe would happen to your eternal soul if you were unexpectantly snatched from this life today?

    Why do you believe this?

    My replies are in your quote. I will discuss no farther. Hope this thread becomes all u want it to be.

    I believe in the eternal soul, and I believe mine will go to heaven upon my death; not because I'm special, or have done anything to deserve it, but simply because I'm a sinner saved by God's grace and his grace alone. His love for us so strong, He gives us the choice to love Him or not.
    If this view and opinion make me a weirdo, radical, or eligible for persecution- so be it.

    Do you base your faith in this on anything or is it just how you feel?

    No offense intended, I am just trying to understand the basis for your faith in your statement.

    Yes, heaven, Because God chose my soul to be one of his own, before he laid the foundation of the world.

    Are you serious?
    All the millions of people that died over the years from Vlad the impaler to
    the death camps in WW2 and the massacres in Africa ...
    Where are their souls now?
    There is no God.
    You can set your own parameters to get yourself through life,
    The truth is always there to see.
    I believe in eternal truth.

    I contemplated, should I post?
    I do not have all the answers, as DS posted, all the deaths, and pain in this world? Why?

    But I believe and know that I know that I know there is a Father / Creator, and His Son came and died
    for my sin, and all of our shortcoming.

    No offense intended, just talking.

    Everyone believes and has faith in something or someone, the question is what or who that something or someone is.

    In my opinion believing in nothing is a larger step of faith than believing in God.

    There can be no evidence for nothing because nothing is just that, nothing. What can hold this faith together?

    On the other hand, there is much evidence for God, Jesus and the cross.

    this mans faith goes a long long way and it truly makes me happy to be alive and know of a man like him. Him finding Jesus is very special in my heart.

    I believe there is a power greater than me. I can't explain or describe the entity. I chose to call my higher power as God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost.

    I will try my best to explain what I believe the truth is.
    Things are what they are up to the point that one decides that they are something else.
    You could say that red is the color that is defined by a certain wavelength of light.
    If you are color blind,it may appear as different altogether.
    The truth is what things really are until one adds their opinion to it.
    It is always there,but not until you strip away all the opinions and misconceptions that
    make it what it is,will you ever be able to see it.It is intangible.The minute you put a label
    on it it becomes a non truth.
    A baby knows more about the truth that an old man,because his head is not yet corrupted
    by infinite misconceptions that the old man has decided his truths are.
    This wisdom is very hard to learn,and only by ridding ones mind of all imperfect ideas,will
    one truly be able to see it.I,by no means have been able to harness this wisdom that I
    refer to as that one truth,but I am certain that it's the only way to see it.
    Did that make any sense to you?

    DS, would it be oversimplifying what you have stated, to say that one's reality is purely their perception.

    or, did i miss it completely
  20. DS

    DS Fenderbender

    I may have oversimplified it.It is much more than that.If there is a God,I believe he is the truth,and we embody him or it from the day we are born.It's up to us to learn how to perceive this truth and establish it as our way of thinking.
    As we get older,it becomes harder and harder to break away from the falsehoods we have learned over the years.
    Try to think of your mind as an empty glass,the less you fill it with,the closer to the truth you stay.
