Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: SIN/ MORALITY, (dharma/adharma) Hell Heaven Time cannot be proved by ORGANIZED RELIGIONS.

Submitted by Servant of Christ (United States), Oct 27, 2007 at 22:15

If there is a blinking of an eye. There is time. If God has created time also that means that God is also not there because God will require time to create TIME. The organized religions' scriptures do not provide answers to the modern world regarding SIN, HELL,HEAVEN, HOLY SPIRIT,CREATION etc., You have to deny your logic and reasoning to accept those principles.

God is unable to be completely understood. God created the time for this universe etc etc. I do not need to deny logic.

Better understanding is given in Rigveda. Pls read below.

The Nasadiya Sukta of the Rigveda describes the origin of the universe as:

"Then was not non-existence nor existence: there was no realm of air, no sky beyond it. What covered in, and where? and what gave shelter? Was water there, unfathomed depth of water? Death was not then, nor was there aught immortal: no sign was there, the day's and night's divider. That One Thing, breathless, breathed by its own nature: apart from it was nothing whatsoever. Darkness there was at first concealed in darkness this. All was indiscriminated chaos. All that existed then was void and form less: by the great power of Warmth was born that Unit. Thereafter rose Desire in the beginning, Desire, the primal seed and germ of Spirit. Sages who searched with their heart's thought discovered the existent's kinship in the non-existent. Transversely was their severing line extended: what was above it then, and what below it? There were begetters, there were mighty forces, free action here and energy up yonder. Who verily knows and who can here declare it, whence it was born and whence comes this creation? The devas are later than this world's production. Who knows then whence it first came into being? He, the first origin of this creation, whether he formed it all or did not form it, Whose eye controls this world in highest heaven, he verily knows it, or perhaps he knows not" - (Rig Veda 10.129.1-7)

It does not count whether you have studied 30 years or memorised verses by heart. The truth has to be found out. In my opinion the concept of all humans are Sinners keep all people in the negative instead of a positve thought that all people are blessed.

Because being positive > negative? No, it's called being realistic.

The Hindu concept of reincarnation finds some reasoning here. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only alter the forms from matter to energy and vise versa.

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, good, but that is completely irrelevant to the soul. If the soul is cannot be created nor destroyed then it is eternal. If it is eternal then it has been here for an infinite time for now. That's impossible because it's impossible to have an infinite amount of time before us.

If you are confining your thinking to the verses of the scriptures you are bound to miss the Truth.

You can refer to J.Krishnamurthy's philosophy about corruption of the mind through orgaized religion.

Regards and best wishes,

Shri Devi.

PS: You need not change your faith in Hinduism to accept its openness. You open your conscciousness and the Truth will take care of itself
The truth cannot be found within yourself.
