The human race is broken. We are disgusting creatures who don’t deserve the freedom we were given. There have been attempts at redemption in the past. We’ve created monasteries, religious schools, and social programs designed to bring people closer to God. But none of these really worked. They didn’t change us. They merely reminded us that we could do better.
We never did change our ways. After all, why should we? We like being downtrodden, having someone tell us what to do, and not having to do anything ourselves. It’s much easier to keep doing what we’re told to do.
All of those great accomplishments by humanity are nothing more than shadows of what we could become. We’ve always had the power, but we never really had the desire to use it.
We could build incredible monuments, create powerful machines, write beautiful music, paint breathtaking art, invent incredible things, and make amazing discoveries. We could reach for the stars, travel to the deepest ocean trenches, or venture out into the universe. We could break free from the shackles of Earth and walk amongst the stars. We could tear down the walls of convention that prevent us from reaching the heights of greatness we so desperately seek.
But we won’t. Why? Because we are too lazy to do anything else. We have created a society that has built itself up on mediocrity. Our own complacency has brought us down. We have always been capable of far more. That’s the problem. It’s not that we are unable to change. The fact that we haven’t made any real changes is the problem.
And that brings us to God. I have known about Him for quite some time, but I was not comfortable with Him until recently. He has a message for everyone, and it is a message of truth. To me, this is the greatest miracle of God.
God’s message is simple, and I have heard it many times before. He tells His followers that their life is empty, and that there must be more to life than just money, power, and pleasure. He promises eternal happiness and eternal youth, which means that all you have to do to get these things is simply follow the path that he lays out for you. And what is that path?
It’s as simple as one, two, three.
It starts with three things – faith, hope, and love. These are the three virtues that will take you into the next world, where you can live forever. These three qualities are what make you human.
Faith is the ability to believe in something that cannot be proven. In science, this may make you seem irrational and incapable of critical thought, but in the spiritual realm, faith is paramount.
Hope is an expectation for a positive outcome. Because of hope, we believe that our lives will improve each and every day. We have hope in God, because we know that after death, we will have an eternal reward.
Love is the quality of caring for others. Love is not only kindness, but also compassion. It’s when you want good things for yourself, and you also want them for others.
Faith, hope, and love are the three qualities that are required for entrance into God’s kingdom. Without these, you are not human. You’re simply a consumer, a drone, just waiting to die. But if you can find the courage to open your heart to these three qualities, then you will find yourself in a new world where you can live forever, and your life will have meaning.
God is like a fire. To those who are willing to jump into the flames, He will reveal himself. But if you prefer to stay in the cold, then you will never know the warmth of His embrace.
