The Concept of God the Origin of the World and the Image of the Human in the World Religions

The Concept of God  the Origin of the World  and the Image of the Human in the World Religions

“The divine, may he be blessed, desires its existence [= man who is in his image],” because man enables God's expansion ... of the endless and shapeless God, the emanation of the Sefirotic realm and their organization in a human shape.

All religions make statements about God or the Absolute and about "the beginning": about the beginning of the world and the beginning and nature of the human person. Propositions about God, the human person, and the world, statements about God's eternity or process of becoming, about the status and nature of the human person as the "image of God", and about the beginning of the world are woven into "religious speculations about the beginning". The theology, anthropology, and cosmology of the world religions determine the image of the human person and the image of the world in the world cultures shaped by the different religions. They stand in a tense relationship with the anthropologies and cosmologies of modern science, which in turn challenge the religions to deepen their image of the human person. With this volume leading thinkers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam provide the reader with a first-hand source for understanding the five world religions and their teaching about God, the human person, and the origin of the world.

Narrative Ontology

Narrative Ontology

The invisible, shapeless God would be comparable at most to space itself, making possible all spatial shapes but, by the same token, not Himself being a shape. Everything visible is 'in' space, but space itself is invisible.

This book is a critical inquiry into three ideas that have been at the heart of philosophical reflection since time immemorial: freedom, God and immortality. Their inherent connection has disappeared from our thought. We barely pay attention to the latter two ideas, and the notion of freedom is used so loosely today that it has become vacuous. Axel Hutter’s book seeks to remind philosophy of its distinct task: only in understanding itself as human self-knowledge that articulates itself in these three ideas will philosophy do justice to its own concept. In developing this line of argument, Hutter finds an ally in Thomas Mann, whose novel Joseph and His Brothers has more to say about freedom, God and immortality than most contemporary philosophy does. Through his reading of Mann’s novel, Hutter explores these three ideas in a distinctive way. He brings out the intimate connection between philosophical self-knowledge and narrative form: Mann’s novel gives expression to the depth of human self-understanding and, thus, demands a genuinely philosophical interpretation. In turn, philosophical concepts are freed from abstractness by resonating with the novel’s motifs and its rich language. Narrative Ontology is both a highly original work of philosophy and a vigorous defence of humanism. It brings together philosophy and literature in a creative way, it will be of great interest to students and scholars in philosophy, literature and the humanities in general.

Does God really exist? Or is He just a grandiose delusion passed down through the millennia to help us deal with our nagging need to find a purpose for our existence? The author grew up in a believing household, never questioning the existence of God, but as he grew older and more interested in his faith, he developed a driving need to know whether or not his faith was justified. A totally blind faith, one that couldn't be supported with any hard evidence, just wouldn't do. If God was real, then He must have left a trail of evidence for a rational thinker to follow. But if there wasn't any trail to follow, then all faith would be blind, and any faith would do as it would become little more than a set of guidelines to follow in an attempt to lead a spiritual and moral life. The author began his exploratory journey with a set of questions that needed to be answered. Do any of the world's religious scriptures reveal information that has parallels in scientific discovery? Do any of the world's religious scriptures offer specific prophesies that have unfolded in recorded history? And lastly, did any of the world's religious scriptures provide a blueprint for living that could drastically change one's life from the inside out? As he sought answers to these questions, he discovered an overwhelming amount of supporting evidence, but it came with a catch: it all pointed in one decisive direction. KELLY RYAN HARRIGER lives in Pennsylvania. He spent most of his working career in Los Angeles, California, as a professional writer in the world of advertising, marketing and entertainment before returning to his boyhood home in Pennsylvania, where he now works as a marketing and advertising consultant for small businesses and non-profit groups.

For thousands of years humanity has longed for a truth, revelation, or knowledge that explains the unity of God behind all mystical experiences, previous revelations, and religions of the world, and the truth behind the universe (science). There have been mystical explanations of God from those claiming they have experienced the truth by direct contact with Spirit. There are also those who have founded great religions of the world. However, a great confusion still reigns among spiritualists, religions of the world, and the many different branches within each religion. If you study this Book carefully, with a sincere mind and an Open Heart, it will be revealed to you that the major religions on earth are not contradictory and separated at all. In fact they are complementary and were sent to earth systematically by One God. When this is understood, the Path to Salvation (Eternal Divine Path) is known! This book is the main writing of Maitreya of the Mission of Maitreya: www.maitreya.org
