"Thou hast well said, I have no husband" - God for All the Mankind

Spring Around Tokyo

God for All the Mankind

It is common understanding that God is the only one and unique existence.  And all the mankind should deepen this understanding.

First of all, we have to admit that 2 and 2 is 4 for Judaists, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and other believers as well as those who deny existence of the only one and unique God.  The laws of  mathematics are accepted by all the mankind.  So, someone who created the law of  mathematics should be admitted as God by everybody.

Secondly, every man knows differences between good and bad, between holy and evil, and between love and hatred.   So, people should admit that there is God who encourages good and love.

Thirdly, every man admits the law of cause and effect.  If you work hard, you can be rewarded.  So, for this material universe, which follows the physical laws, to be created, there must be certain force and intention or a plan behind the creation.  So, it is natural to think that God created this material universe with specific intention and a specific plan.

There are hundreds or thousands of laws and key constants of physics and other natural scientific fields (  The material world is built on them.  From medical drugs to smart phones, every product functions and works subject to these laws and constants.  This material universe could not be generated by chance or in a random manner.  It must have been planned, designed, and created by God.

In addition, there have been so many tribes and communities, but there have been no tribes and communities where evil and wickedness are praised and encouraged although each tribe and community has often hated and attacked their enemies, denying causes and justice of their enemies.

So, it is not difficult to admit that there is God as the creator of the physical universe with omnipotence and as the ruler of spiritual world with unlimited love.  However, it is thought that God never eats and breathe.  God is not a living thing like a man.  Then how does God exist?  Or can a man exist as a pure spirit apart from biological conditions?

But what is the most important for men is that God can set, change, and create their fates and destinies.   For this belief, men sometimes pray to God for help.  God can save and rescue any man in  hardship.  No matter how many times this prayers fail, people never cease to appeal to God.  However, criteria God applies to people are different from human judgement.  God sometimes saves people not in a worldly manner but in a Heavenly manner.

What's more, there is Satan as God exists.  Nowadays, there are many people who don't believe both God and Satan.  But centuries ago, most of people believed God and evil spirits or Satan.  As society developed and science prevailed, most of people have come to stop thinking about God and Satan.  But this is the very situation Satan wishes.

It is strange that God created Satan for some reason.  To understand this reason must be the final challenge for the mankind in the field of religion.  Why does God who is almighty need Satan or allow existence of Satan to fulfill his purpose related to human beings?

Anyway, the mankind as one species must admit that they are under the one and only and unique God.  Every religion of the mankind must be directed to God if various religious forms such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism are allowed to exist.

Joh 4:16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
Joh 4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
Joh 4:18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
Joh 4:19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
