Why Atheists Don’t Believe in the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and Why Christians Do

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is a central belief of Christianity. Christians hold that Jesus died for their sins and was resurrected on the third day, thus paving the way for eternal life for believers. However, atheists do not share this belief. In this article, we will explore the reasons why atheists do not believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and why Christians do.

To start, it is important to note that atheism is a lack of belief in gods or supernatural beings. This means that atheists do not accept the existence of a divine being, including Jesus Christ. For atheists, the idea of a God who created the universe, controls it, and intervenes in human affairs is a mere myth, and as such, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ holds no significance for them.

Furthermore, atheists reject the notion of an afterlife, which is a key component of Christian belief. Christians believe that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was a sign of eternal life, and that those who believe in him will also be resurrected and have eternal life. Atheists, however, do not believe in an afterlife and thus see the resurrection of Jesus as a fictional story, rather than a historical event.

Additionally, atheists tend to be skeptical of supernatural events and miraculous claims. The idea that a man could rise from the dead is seen as implausible, as it defies the laws of physics and goes against our understanding of biology. As such, atheists are more likely to see the resurrection of Jesus as a legend or myth rather than a factual event.

Moreover, many atheists argue that the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has been embellished and distorted over time. The New Testament, which is the primary source of information about Jesus, was written decades after his death by people who did not personally witness the events they were describing. Furthermore, the texts were written in a different cultural and historical context, which makes it difficult to interpret them accurately.

Some atheists also point out that there are discrepancies in the various accounts of the death and resurrection of Jesus in the New Testament. For example, the four gospels provide different details about the timing and sequence of events, and some events are only mentioned in one gospel. This leads some atheists to question the accuracy of the accounts and to view them as unreliable.

Exploring the Symbolic Meanings of Animals in Dreams: The Significance of Goats and Dogs.

Dreams are one of the most mysterious and intriguing aspects of human experience. They provide us with a window into the unconscious mind, and can often reveal our deepest fears, desires, and emotions. One of the most common elements of dreams is the presence of animals, which can represent a wide range of symbolic meanings.

From a subconscious level, animals in dreams can represent different aspects of the self, including instincts, emotions, and behaviors. In some cases, they can even represent certain archetypes that have been present in human culture for thousands of years.

In this article, we will explore the role that animals play in our dreams, with a particular focus on the symbolism of goats and dogs. We will also examine the connection between these animals and the zodiac, as well as the darker and more demonic aspects that can be associated with them.

The Symbolism of Goats in Dreams
Goats have a long history of symbolism in human culture, dating back thousands of years. In many cultures, goats are associated with fertility, abundance, and even divinity. In ancient Greece, for example, goats were often associated with the god Pan, who was a symbol of wildness, fertility, and the natural world.

From a symbolic perspective, goats can represent a wide range of things in our dreams. In some cases, they may represent a sense of abundance or prosperity, as goats are often seen as symbols of wealth and good fortune. They may also represent a sense of independence and self-reliance, as goats are known for their ability to navigate difficult terrain and survive in harsh environments.

Humanity and the Interconnectedness of Bees: A Spiritual Perspective on the Skellig Michael Monastic Site

Humanity is a complex and multifaceted entity, much like a colony of bees. The ancient monastic site of Skellig Michael, situated off the west coast of Ireland, provides a fascinating example of this. The beehive-like structures on the island were constructed by skilled and dedicated monks, and are a testament to their interconnectedness, working together to create a thriving monastic community. The Vatican has long recognized the similarities between humanity and bees, with scripture commenting on the order of the bees and how the Vatican council understands that humanity is like a colony of bees, not only interacting physically with one another but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually etc.

The interconnectedness of humanity is not just limited to physical interactions, but also mental, emotional, and spiritual ones. Our thoughts, feelings, and dreams are not our own, but come from a greater consciousness. These energies enter our minds through our hands and feet, which are the main entry points for these thoughts. In order to counteract these intrusive thoughts, it is important to bring our hands together or upward with palms faced to the sky while praying. This helps to channel the energy into the third energy center or solar plexus, which is responsible for processing our thoughts and emotions. This energy is then fed back to the third eye or halo, creating a powerful connection between our physical and spiritual selves.
In far Eastern spiritual beliefs, the third energy center is associated with the color yellow, which is also the color of the halo in Christianity. This connection illustrates the deep interconnectedness of humanity across different cultures and religions, as we all seek to connect with the divine and improve our spiritual well-being.

Understanding the interconnectedness of humanity is essential in today’s society, where we are often disconnected from one another and our own spiritual selves. In this article, we will explore the interconnectedness of humanity in greater detail, examining the similarities between bees and humans, the role of intrusive thoughts, and the importance of bringing our hands together in prayer. We will also delve into the far Eastern spiritual beliefs regarding the third energy center and the color yellow, and how they relate to the halo in Christianity. Finally, we will discuss the connection between the third energy center and the third eye, whole eye or halo, and the pineal gland, as it is known in ancient spiritual texts.

Light language vs speaking in tongues, discussing similarities and how we attach ourselves to words in conversation.

Light Language and speaking in tongues are two forms of spiritual communication that have gained popularity in recent years. Both are considered to be forms of channeling, or the act of communicating with higher spiritual realms or entities.

Light Language is a form of spiritual communication that is said to be a universal language of light and sound. It is believed to be a form of energetic language that is used to heal, transform, and connect with higher realms of consciousness. Light Language is said to be a form of “light codes” that can be spoken, sung, or even written. It is often used in healing sessions, meditations, and other spiritual practices.

Speaking in tongues, also known as glossolalia, is a form of religious speech that is characterized by the use of words or phrases that are not understood by the speaker. It is often associated with Christian charismatic and Pentecostal movements, and is believed to be a form of spiritual communication with God or the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues is said to be a form of divine inspiration that allows the speaker to communicate with God in a deeper, more profound way.

Both Light Language and speaking in tongues have similarities in that they are both forms of spiritual communication that are believed to be beyond the realm of human understanding. They are also both associated with spiritual practices and experiences, such as healing and connection with higher realms of consciousness.

Twin flames

Twin flames are a spiritual concept that has been discussed in various religious and spiritual texts throughout history. The idea of twin flames is that each person has a counterpart, a soulmate, with whom they share a deep and unbreakable connection. This connection is said to be so powerful that it transcends time and space, and is often associated with the awakening of the solar plexus.

In Hindu spiritual texts, the solar plexus, also known as the Manipura chakra, is associated with fire. This chakra is located in the area of the ribs, and is said to be the seat of our personal power and will. It is believed that when the solar plexus is awakened, it allows us to tap into our inner strength and wisdom, and to connect with our inner guidance.

This understanding of the solar plexus being associated with fire may also be seen in the Bible, in the story of how Eve was taken from Adam’s rib. In this story, Eve is often seen as a representation of the feminine aspect of humanity, and her creation from Adam’s rib may symbolize the connection between the masculine and feminine aspects of our being.

The concept of hell may also be derived from this understanding of the solar plexus and fire. In many religious traditions, hell is described as a place of eternal fire and suffering. This may be a metaphor for the inner turmoil and suffering that can occur when the solar plexus is blocked or out of balance. When the solar plexus is blocked, it can lead to feelings of powerlessness, fear, and confusion, which can manifest as inner turmoil and suffering.

The awakening of the solar plexus and the connection with the Holy Spirit is also seen in the relationship between Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ. In many religious texts, Mary and Jesus are often depicted standing side by side with both hearts on fire, denoting a twin flame relationship. This imagery suggests that their connection was not just a physical or emotional one, but rather a spiritual one.

The Gospel of Matthew 3:11 and Luke 3:16 also reference the concept of fire in relation to Jesus’ baptism. John the Baptist says “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” This can be seen as a metaphor for the awakening of the solar plexus and the connection with the Holy Spirit. The fire that is mentioned here may symbolize the transformative power of the Holy Spirit, which can lead to the awakening of the solar plexus and the connection with one’s twin flame.

In conclusion, twin flames are a spiritual concept that has been discussed in various religious and spiritual texts throughout history. The idea of twin flames is that each person has a counterpart, a soulmate, with whom they share a deep and unbreakable connection. This connection is said to be so powerful that it transcends time and space, and is often associated with the awakening of the solar plexus.

The solar plexus, located in the area of the ribs, is associated with fire and personal power in Hindu spiritual texts. The same understanding can be seen in the Bible story of Eve being taken from Adam’s rib.

The concept of hell may also be derived from this understanding of the solar plexus and fire. The Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ are often depicted standing side by side with both hearts on fire, denoting a twin flame relationship. The Gospel of Matthew and Luke also reference the concept of fire in relation to Jesus’ baptism, symbolizing the transformative power of the Holy Spirit, which can lead to the awakening of the solar plexus and the connection with one’s twin flame.

Harmonics of the Bible

The harmonics of the Bible is a complex and fascinating topic that delves into the hidden meanings and connections between numbers, music, and spirituality. One number that plays a significant role in this discussion is the number 27. This number appears in various contexts within the Bible, as well as in music theory, and has been studied by scholars and mystics for centuries.

In music theory, the number 27 is significant because of its connection to Pythagoras’ music theorem. Pythagoras, the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician, is credited with discovering the mathematical ratios that govern musical harmony. He found that the interval between two notes that are an octave apart is a ratio of 2:1. When this ratio is multiplied by itself, the resulting ratio is 3:2. This is the ratio of the perfect fifth, which is considered to be the most consonant interval in music.

When these ratios are multiplied by themselves again, the resulting ratio is 9:4, which is the ratio of the perfect fourth. This process can be continued, and the result is a series of ratios that form a musical scale. If you add up these ratios, the sum is 27. This suggests that the number 27 is connected to the fundamental principles of musical harmony, and is a symbol of the unity and balance that is at the heart of music.

In the Bible, the number 27 also appears in a number of significant ways. For example, there are 27 books in the New Testament, which is a testament to the divinity of Jesus Christ. Additionally, there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and one of them, the letter “&”, is missing. This is significant because the letter “&” represents the concept of unity, and its absence suggests that humanity is not yet in a state of unity. When we add the letter “&” to the alphabet, the total number of letters becomes 27, which symbolizes the unity that will be achieved when humanity is in harmony with the divine.

Another place where the number 27 appears in the Bible is in the book of Numbers. In the book of Numbers, the Israelites were commanded to take a census of all the males who were able to go to war. The total number of males who were counted was 603,550. If you add the digits of this number together, the sum is 27. This suggests that the Israelites were symbolically representing all of humanity in this census and the number 27 represents the unity and harmony that will be achieved when humanity is in harmony with the divine.

Gospel reading Matthew 11: 2 – 11

In the Gospel for the previous Sunday (Matthew 3:1-12), we heard the stirring words of John the Baptist at the Jordan River concerning the one who is to come.
The Messiah, he said, will baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire, and he will exercise judgment. In the fashion of a swashbuckler, his coming will be dramatic, to say the least.

But Jesus does not really fit the mold. He comes on the scene as one who proclaims the kingdom of God, calls upon people to trust in God, heals the sick, and befriends tax collectors and persons labeled “sinners.” It is little wonder that John, now sitting in prison with time to think, questions whether Jesus is the one to come or not. Jesus fits neither John`s expectations nor those of Jewish messianism in general. John’s question in 11:3 is therefore totally understandable: “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?”

The question of John and the response of Jesus in 11:2-6 are actually relayed by disciples of John the Baptist. (That John had disciples is attested not only here and in its parallel at Luke 7:18-23, but also in John 1:35; 3:25.) John is now not certain whether Jesus is the “coming one,” an expression which refers to the Messiah as the one to come (Matthew 21:9, Mark 11:9, Luke 19:38, John 12:13, Heb 10:37), based on Old Testament imagery (Psalm 118:26).

“No tree can grow to Heaven unless it’s roots reach down to Hell.”

In the journey to become enlightened — the path to become the greatest version of human possible — you must see the evil within yourself.

Think of the worst atrocities that humankind has committed — then realize and come to terms with the fact that you hold the potential within you to commit those same atrocities. It is not enough to merely acknowledge the potential — you must truly understand/comprehend the capacity for evil within you. You must meditate on these evils, and their accompanying motivations, consequences, and feelings…feelings of enjoying inflicting evil and suffering upon others. You must feel how gratifying it can be to be Adolf Hitler for example.

Only then are you truly capable of embodying the greatest good. True goodness does not emerge from a happy ignorance of evil — these people fall apart when they encounter true evil that they do not have a theory for. This is how PTSD emerges. Goodness can only come from a true understanding of evil, and the choice to act in the good in the face of the suffering of life.

This truth is written in our genetic code, and is likely why we all feel a sense of gratification when the evil villain redeems himself into the hero that saves the day.

This idea of goodness being emergent from the understanding, and subsequent rejection of evil is reflected in the story of Christ (the central figure in Western culture) rejecting the temptation of Satan three times in the Judaean desert, where Christ plays the archetype of the perfect human: he who, through unjustly being nailed to a cross and tortured by the world of unenlightened man, willingly embraces his own suffering and carries it on his back along with the suffering and darkness of all men. If we envision life as a game, and “God” as the rules/enforcer of the rules of the game, then Christ is the “perfect player” of the game who makes the correct decision in every circumstance that he encounters — that which all can aspire to.

What is Cosmic Energy?

Cosmic energy is the life force that is existent everywhere. It is present in the cosmos, between the galaxies, the molecules and in the space. It is essential to maintain the order in life and expand our consciousness.

Cosmic energy is received by being at peace with one’s own self and living in the present moment. Blissfulness is the basic characteristic of cosmic energy. It is a state of mind that combines peace, love and joy.

Cosmic energy is the basis of all our actions, reactions to situations and functions in totality. Our body receives some amount of cosmic energy when we are asleep in total silence and with peace of mind. Cosmic energy is essential for the following reasons:

• To maintain an orderly life
• To lead a happy and healthy life
• To obtain knowledge
• To completely involve in all the situations in life
• To expand our consciousness

Influences from Beyond the Atmosphere
Contemplation of the vastness of space, the stars and planets produces awe. The Earth is a spin-off of some ancient cosmic event, and humans therefore are composed of highly evolved star dust.

In that sense, deep space has everything to do with human existence. The end of the planet, and human life, may result from some gigantic celestial collision. Beyond these titanic effects, does deep space have any continuing psychological influence in everyday life?
