How to Deserve God in Life?

Postby Jakob » Mon Sep 02, 2019 11:41 pm

This question has inadvertently gripped me since I learned of the existence of deities.

How does it work?

Do Gods favour people in advance, like astrology says? I believe evidence points in that direction.

So this leads me to consider karma as an astrophysical concept. A way for God to deal himself into the equation of his creation. But I dont know any of this.
Why do I believe it?

Because it is a good way of conserving effort, maintaining the traction of cause and effect on as many levels as possible. Value preservation, where value is invested energy. Invested in... such a thing as human integrity, honour, goodness cultivated through Gods merciful plan and mans intelligence's grasp on this plan.

God is merciful. But he has to be for pulling such as trick as allowing existence.
I believe he didn't create it, he merely consented to the job of governing such a thing and by his consent came into existence.

Jesus is probably really God, then. At least that God which once consented to such a terrible job and found a way to redeem him-it - us all-self.

But, God found other ways, too. And of course these were other Gods, who maybe didnt consent to anything, and came into being out of other kinds of choices. I wonder really how Jesus or Christ really feels about such Gods as roam the ancient lands he never knew.

I didn't know Astrology says that.

In advance of being born?
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Well no, right in the moment, naturally. But the idea is that this is a karmic window where a soul finds an opportunity to continue its being, as circumstances are compatible with the way he or she left last time.

Oh.. so in advance of the moment, and each subsequent moment after moment after moment?

Karmic compatibility? now there's a thing.. I don't think that mine is compatible with the many.

Yes, the "progressed chart".

Have you had your chart read?

..a part chart, as a teen.. once or twice.

I prefer things to unfold, and therefore evolve, in real time.. before my eyes. :)

I read the Stars.. and sometimes the Chinese Horoscope, and know who my Power Animal and God-likeness are, and that's enough for me to work with, as I like my happenings, happening. :D
