Dear Editor in Chief,
l) Celibacy in priesthood vs. married pastor, married missionary, married
preachers: Matthew 19:10-12: Quote: ...For there are different reason why men
cannot marry: some, because they were born that way; others because men made
them that way; and others do not marry for the sake of the Kingdom of heaven.
Let him who can accept this teaching do so.” 1 Corinthians 7:32-33:...An
unmarried man concerns himself with the Lord’s work, because he is trying to
please the Lord vs. Titus 1:6: an elder must be without fault; he must have only
one wife, and his children must be believers and not have the reputation of being
wild or disobedient. 1 Timothy 5:17: The elder who do good work as leader
should be considered worthy of receiving double pay, especially those who work
hard at preaching and teaching. 1 Corinthians7:1-23 its long...but verse 9 is
short: But if you cannot restrain your desires, go ahead and marry-it is better to
marry than to burn with passion. 1 Timothy 4:2:1 …follow the teachings of
demons…. Such people teach that it is wrong to marry and eat certain foods.
Unquote.
Perhaps I heard a ‘b’ spiritual leader who belong to group example “b13”
condemning group “a” about celibacy even quoting words in Timothy 4:2 that
mentions the teaching “that it is wrong to marry” is a teaching from the
demon…! I think controversial things hurts and create arguments and conflicts;
but there could be some truth in it that is why there are problems like loneliness
that cause promiscuity, scandals of those who is not allowed to marry” and that
person example called “A” has child/children. Others are burning with passion
that result to offences such pedophilia, homosexual. Perhaps those extremes
cause by scandals could be balanced by tolerance. Perhaps in the near future “A”
could be like pastors who could marry or not; and could have happy family or
not. “A” would not be ashamed and hide about his “burning passion” and would
enjoy a family man as well as being a minister of God. With regards to properties
and cash collections in the parish, it would have check and balances. “A” would
be paid per rendering service basis like a doctor or other professional. But his
conduct would be evaluated perhaps every six month as a policy like those
professionals where the licensed is cancelled if one commits wrongdoing.
So perhaps telling sermons on the pulpit could now be allowed to
professional married men or perhaps women having masters or doctorate in
conducting seminars, public speaking, speeches, talk shows, or author of
religious books regardless of religious affiliation talking and spreading the one
thought and one purpose-love commandment. Perhaps a rabbi, or a cleric or a
monk or a teacher of any group could give sermon on a church where a priest or
any spiritual teacher usually does the sermon as long as the speaker is licensed or
is a professional public speaker. Use of big computer TV screen could now be
allowed in churches, and projectors. Perhaps favorite charismatic masters in
public speaking could be recorded on personal computer and CD that anyone
could replay those recorded speeches at desired time.
With regards to that ‘b’ who said that “the teaching that it is wrong to marry”
is a teaching from the demon and accuses specifically giving the name of the
group, and keep on telling on the air that his group has the “only” ultimate truth,
that his group is the “only” true group could be balanced by also words. Perhaps
his curious mind is under the control of conceit, proud, self-righteousness, and
others because he creates arguments, divisions, and distinctions by falsely
accusing another moderate/balanced group using direct description that could
perhaps be a libelous. Perhaps the united moderate/balanced religious
organization could pass an international religious/civil law that any group
criticizing another group and naming name is libelous if touching on
controversial thing. That ‘b’ should re-read several times words: Matthew 19:16-
19: quote: Once a man came to Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what good thing
must I do to receive eternal life?” “Why do you ask me concerning what is
good?” answered Jesus. “There is only One who is good. Keep the
commandments if you want to enter life.” “What commandments?” he asked.
Jesus answered, “Do not commit murder; do not commit adultery; do not steal;
do not accuse anyone falsely; respect your father and mother; love your neighbor
as you love yourself.” Unquote. Perhaps group “b13” should say sorry to group
“a” because being celibate is not a teaching of the demon because it is imitating
also Jesus and some apostles like Paul who is an unmarried servant of God.
Perhaps the bottom line is unmarried preacher or unmarried servant of God
vs. married servant of God. Another bottom line is: Christ is just a perfect prophet
vs. Christ is the promised Messiah vs. Christ is not a true Messiah. Then the
united moderate religions would conduct a survey: Example the procedures
would be: One would fill the data first: 1) country 2) if he has a curious mind
with “a, b, c, d, e, etc.”- Christian; ian –represents any group that believes on
universal Word-love or Christ- commandment, example “d” is Hindu-Christian,
“e” is Buddhist-Christian, “f”-atheist, then one would press mode, example: f1
for “a”, f2 for “b”, and so on...! Example: the question is: Would you like that
anybody regardless of religious affiliation as long as one has a licensed to preach
about Love and universal word and would not touch on controversial topics that
could hurt any group, and one-he/she-unmarried/married- could now preach
sermon on any group? Press 1 if yes. Press 2 if no. Another Example of
questionnaire would be: Do you agree; or believe that Christ is equal with the
spiritual rock=Commandments=teaching of love; even loving enemy=could
balance, check hate ideology? If yes...press f7 and pray and accept “Christ” as
ones personal savior. If no… press f8 and still pray and accept that his “God” and
“Christ” could be, might be “the same” or “one” for the sake of world peace; but
for definitely no...press f9; and hate others because it boosts ones superiority and
supremacy and “ego-a proud claim”!; If no comment....Press f10.
If the united moderate religions would conduct another survey on how the
curious mind of any religion or group would interpret the word: “Matthew 12:32:
quote: Anyone who says something against the Son of Man can be forgiven; but
whoever says something against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven-now or
ever”. Unquote. Then perhaps press F1 if the interpretation is: Jesus Christ is
human or prophet like famous prophets in history teaching good news. Press F2 if
the interpretation is: “Christ” is spiritual rock, the same as the “Word” mentioned
in John 1:1 ...he was with God, and he was the same as God...! Press F3 if the
interpretation is like: “Jesus Christ” has an evil spirit because he teaches different
from our “only” true, right way teachings-ours is to hate others especially our
enemies and who is not member of our group/religion because they are infidels;
and we don’t believe on word: 1 John 4:20: “If someone says he loves God, but
hates his brother, he is a liar. Or “1 John3:15: Who ever hate his brother is a
murderer, and you know that a murderer does not have eternal life in him.” Press
F4 if no comment...or I don’t mind!
Let us go back to the controversy about tradition of men. The battle of
tradition of men example procession of idol icon would go down to battle of
faiths: These battle of faith or beliefs have/had so much cause arguments,
conflicts, distinctions, divisions, superiority, superstition because there is no
concrete measuring standard or formula that could be the basis to balance the
extreme. And for thousand of years “words” were blurred perhaps because
science was not reconsidered. Perhaps “faith” believing something without
seeing; or verifying things without basis from the universal word could lead to
blurred things or controversial things if it goes beyond the one thought and one
purpose- commandment of love-especially the 4th to 8th or built-in as instinct and
in-born; and its about universal civil & criminal law-moral & ethics; and the 1st &
3rd some parts are about tolerance on the day of worshiping and on idols; 9 th &
10th its about desires; 2nd its about instinct to honor the name of God. And perhaps
faith considering science and universal instinct and in-born goodness- or “faith”
base from any moderate, balanced universal word- could be a universal balanced
faith. So perhaps there are still so many faiths that are extremes that are
considered “balanced” lasting thousand years perhaps called “distinction” base
from superstition and not practical motive.
Perhaps blurred things–extreme vs. clear things is a battle where one’s
“faith” -or perhaps “believing” without seeing- is tested on simple practical
things first rather than those things that makes the curious mind wait and wait for
things to come true- later or never. Very concrete accomplishment and realization
of faith that would come true is when a hundred years “disorderly” carrying of
idol icon with some drunken people could now be well disciplined, and
presentable. Or perhaps orderly and presentable of carrying the idol now or this
year with modern floats, and “disorderly” and with smelly liquor of people
carrying the idol icon that has been the traditional way of carrying for hundreds
of years next year to have some balancing of extreme or compromise; or rotation.
From someone who might be mistaken in balancing small things
first,
