There are so many misconceptions in life.. things we tend to believe to be true.. and most will fight to the death to prove that what they think is right..
Take a look at all of the misconceptions we have about God.. who He is.. what He is about.. we have many different idea's on the conception of heaven.. and how one gets there.. what will be there .. who will be there..
The misconceptions we have on when life starts.. can boggle ones mind..some say life does not start until one takes its first breath..I may not be a scientist.. nor a doctor.. but I am a mother.. and I can tell you first hand.. that life begins way before it takes its first breath..
and what about the misconceptions of where and how we came to be?Our late Pope John Paul 11.. gave a pretty good explanation of this.. when presented by a scientist who was a friend of his.. about the possibility of man evolving from monkeys.. In essence the pope told his friend.. that it really did not matter where the body of man came from..for it will only turn into dust once it dies.. what was important was where the soul of man came from.. and where the soul of man goes after death..for its the soul that lives on..
We being human tend to put things in human form and understanding.. so when we are told that God created us in His image.. we tend to vision a human form.. and because Jesus was half man and half God.. then it makes sense to us.. that God looks like us.. or we look like God.. in Human form..but we tend to ignore the soul.. its our souls that reflect the image of God.. not our bodies.. for our body is only a shell that encases the soul.. which is what will last through out eternity..
have you ever wondered what our soul look like ? how do we feed the soul.. how do we access our soul.. ? how do we relate to that which we can't not see.. but in truth is our very essence..?
we feed our bodies.. we clothe our bodies.. our bodies get sick..we go and see a doctor.. we take meds.. our bodies die.. it decays.. and goes back to dust..
But what about the soul? Have you ever really thought about your soul.. what it looks like.. what happens to it.. can we kill it?
Seems like we tend to kill a lot of things through out our lives..past /and present history of the human race is evidence that we can be a savage..selfish..race..when we suffocate the soul..
war rages within us all the time.. our body yearns for one thing.. while the soul yearns for another..its a consent battle.. in the end.. the body will die..the soul will live.. what happens to it then.. depends on how strong it became on what it was fed while imprisoned with in the body..
will it be brilliant and soft.. or ugly and crippled..
guess its up to us.. on what we want to it to reflect..how we feed it..how we take care of it..
