"treasures in heaven" - Even a Dollar in This World

Around Tokyo

Even a Dollar in This World

If you are rich and happy in this world, you will be poor and suffer in the hell.  But if you are poor and unhappy in this world, you will be rich and happy in Heaven.

This teaching of Christ Jesus implies that the total of wealth and happiness is constant all through this world and anther world consisting of Heaven and the hell.  The more you get in this world, the less you get in another world.

If poor and unhappy men believe in Christ Jesus, they should be  consoled very much.  But rich and happy men would not believe in Christ Jesus, because they are too busy enjoying their rich lives.

To understand depth of the meaning of this teaching requires love to the poor and unhappy.  Without love to them, you cannot accept this teaching.  And if you cannot accept the teaching, you cannot understand the meaning.

From the beginning, God created everyone with the same love to him or her.  God must prepare a mechanism to solve any problems arising from iniquity and the gap between the rich and the poor.  All we have to do is believe love of God to love, goodness and justice.

Otherwise, Satan might capture minds and heats of everyone and make him or her its slave by use of power of money.

In other words, to live with one million dollars in this world or to live with one million dollars in another world.  The former leads to the hell while the latter leads to Heaven.

It is because you cannot earn even a dollar in this world without sacrificing others and betraying God.

Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

"his disciples went down unto the sea" - God in the Brain or the Brain from God

Around Tokyo

God in the Brain or the Brain from God

It is said that there is a special location in the human brain where a man can see a god.

The location called the temporal lobe in the brain judges the space around him by synthesizing information input from the eyes and ears  as well as senses of touch.  But it was found that when a man starts praying, information coming to the temporal lobe is restricted and prevented.  Then, during praying, the man starts to feel space different from ordinary space.  Consequently, some people may see a god in this state.

Therefore, some scientists think that a god is something that is created in the human brain.  But some person of religion thinks that God gave the function to see God in the human brain.

It is said that there are 100 billion or 200 billion nerve cells (neurons) in central nerves of a human brain.  It is natural that that there are few singular cells.  And the number of connections of neurons or synapses is said to be 150 trillion.  It is natural that there are several singular cell connections.

If God had created the mankind, there must be a possibility that He put some special mechanism in the human brain with which each man can contact with God if he or she wishes.  So, part of the mission of medical doctors should to find such a mechanism.  However, that a man can feel God by such a mechanism does not mean that God is created by the man; rather it should be thought that God gave such a mechanism to the mankind as a gift for promoting intimacy between the mankind and God.

Yet, it is dangerous to try to activate such a mechanism by use of drugs, chemicals, or such things.  It should be activated in a reasonable situation.

For example, when a man is dying, such a mechanism may be naturally activated to make the man prepared for the afterlife or the spiritual universe.  So,  near-death experiences can be explained from this point of view.

Anyway, it needs a more high-performance computer than existent ones to understand functions of all the 200 billion nerve cells and 150 trillion connections among them.

Nonetheless, there must come a day in the future that a super AI computer presents an image of God before the mankind, if it is not achieved in the 21st century.

Joh 6:16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
Joh 6:17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
Joh 6:18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
