What God Wants?

Something created the nature in which we live. This nature is very complex, logical, functional, rational, beautiful and harmonious. It means that a highly developed power that we could not conceive has created the world. I accepted that the name of this force is God. God created a good world. God certainly wants people to live well but people deviate from his will.

Some individuals claim to have received messages from God and they carried out his will to the people. This was the origin of religion. Religions largely contain ancient wisdom that brings good to people and that is why we can say they carry the will of God. But why do the messages of God carry only the knowledge of the time when the religion originated? Why has God, as almighty and all-knowing, not said anything more about the world that, according to the Bible, he created in seven days? Or, perhaps most importantly, why God did not tell these people how to build a good society? Does the lack of knowledge that comes from the Bible mean that people invented the message of God or that people were not able to understand his message well enough? Taking into account that different people received different messages from God, they have formed different religions. But God certainly has not sent different messages to different religions; he certainly did not deceive people.

In addition, the range of material that is entered in the religious books is very comprehensive but not effective in defining a good society. God is not a chatter; he is an extremely effective creator which means that his messages must be effective as well. In contrast, in the religious books there are many messages that are contrary to the wisdom, which cannot make a good society. Such messages certainly cannot be sent by God.

Most religions force people to follow the will of God obediently. God certainly does not want to force people into anything because coercion cannot make good. Power over people is a need of the spiritually undeveloped people. Power over people is a privilege that brings evil. This power creates stupidity, greed, hatred, destruction, wars, and hell on earth. It has nothing to do with the will of God. With this in regard, the religions which force people to follow God, are in direct confrontation with the will of God. God does not need power over people. He is far above such need. God wants us to create a good society.
Can we assume that among the people who wrote religious books were some who wanted to reach power over people?

When you see how easily today's religious preachers improvise verses from the Bible to achieve intellectual superiority over others, then certainly we can assume the writers of religious books did the same. These people entered ideas into religious books that have nothing to do with the will of God.


So how to fulfil the will of God and create a good society? After a long analysis I came to the conclusion that it is possible only through the establishment of equal human rights. Equal human rights are the answer to all the problems of society. Equal human rights will bring freedom, love, peace, wisdom, joy, and every good throughout society.

Today we have defined equal human rights but insufficiently. Furthermore, all equal human rights are established on the formal level, while reality suggests that they are not equal. The president of your country may send you to war and you cannot do it to him. Your boss may fire you and you cannot do it to him. Your teacher may force you to accept knowledge and you cannot do it to him. Where are the equal human rights here?

Equal human rights imply universal equality of all people. This includes the right of all people to participate equally in decision-making on all issues of common interest in the society. Throughout history, authorities have prevented the development of equal human rights so people are not even aware of how necessary these rights are. Besides that, until recently, equal human rights have not been possible to establish because it was impossible to harmonize the needs and decisions of all people. This has become possible only with the development of computer technology. But anyway, there is no excuse for religions which have not defined equal human rights as the primary will of God.

Equal rights cannot be imposed on society. They are a goal that should be accepted by society. The equal rights will be developed gradually.

In capitalism, equal human rights imply the equal right of every man to work. Such a right cannot be achieved as long as there is unemployment. Unemployment will be eliminated by shortening working hours proportionally to the rate of unemployment. Employers will try to retain workers and to achieve it they would increase the wages of workers which would bring them a better life. They will be able to buy more, which will remove the present crisis of capitalism.

Then there would come an equal right to employment of workers at every public workplace. It is necessary to open a permanent competition at every public workplace in which the best worker would get the right to work, at any time. It is necessary to adopt a system that will effectively evaluate the productivity of work offers, harmonize rewards for work, and define job responsibilities of workers. It is only a technical problem that can be solved. No economy can be more productive than the one in which each job gets the best available worker. Public companies will become more productive and more profitable than private ones. Owners of private companies will leave their companies to society in exchange for a reasonable equivalent value. It will be a good socialism.

The final phase of the formation of equal human rights will begin in a good communism where equal consumer rights would be established. In order to realize it, people need to discover new values that will come as the result of equal human rights, values that follow the will of God, which are significantly larger than money. Then we can expect that people will voluntarily assign all their incomes for taxes. It will make all the goods and services free for all people.

Equal human rights will finally eliminate social evil and create a good society, a paradise on earth. I have clearly defined how it should look like in my scientific book Humanism. According to the religious books, the Messiah will realize heaven on earth. This means that I am the Messiah. Since I belong to the Christian religion, it should mean that I am Jesus Christ. But the Bible does not allow me to be Jesus Christ because I have not seen nor heard God the Father. According to the Bible, Jesus Christ and God the Father are one which implies that they are at least familiar to each other. There arises a major problem in the Bible's description of Jesus Christ. He, in fact, showed too little knowledge to be equated with the creator of the world. I have explained how to build a good society. I have defined the expectations of God for the people of the Earth and Jesus Christ has not.

According to the Bible, I cannot be Jesus Christ because I do not know anything about the other world or eternal life. Yet I can say something about it from the secular philosophical side. In the article “Everlasting life” I quoted the studious Christian website "2001 Translation Bible" which again translates the original Bible written in Greek. In the article "Does the Bible promises eternal life?" they claim that the existence of eternal life cannot be determined with certainty because the words "eternal life" do not exist in the original Bible. Due to the different meanings of related words in different languages, Bible translators sometimes interpreted the lyrics freely.

Then I asked whether eternal life is desirable, even if it is only in spiritual form? One could say that the actor Christopher Reeve was practically condemned to spiritual life. He fell from a horse, broke his neck and was immobile for life. He did not like such a spiritual life, was unhappy and even thought of suicide. Why do Christians believe that eternal life should be good? I think I have an approximate answer to this question. People who are not free are not able to satisfy the needs of their lives. Narcissistic authorities need to achieve supremacy in society and are slaves to their megalomaniac ideas that cannot be achieved. People, who live under the oppression of authorities and obediently follow them, also cannot meet their needs. Both do not live well and are afraid of death because they feel that they did not live their lives as they would like.

People who live in freedom, responsible towards their lives and the nature that surrounds them, are able to live life in its fullness. Such people are not afraid of death, because they recognize that their living has fulfilled their life expectations. Death brings them freedom in the broadest sense, because they practically do not need anything anymore. Spiritual writers have shown this state in their work. For example, Victor Hugo in novel "Les Misérables" and Henryk Sienkiewicz in novel "Quo Vadis." I believe that God made the best solution for the man, and a longer life than God had predicted would be a disadvantage. I think that God allocated to the people who follow his equal human rights-based will a good life and death as a good gift.

In the end, I ask you dear reader, why would Jesus Christ ever come when I have defined heaven on earth as he was supposed to do? He is no longer needed. The Church does not accept me for the Messiah because some people write nonsense in the Bible. So instead of helping to establish God's will, the Bible is slowing the arrival of a good society.
