Opinion: As an Agnostic Pantheist
Miracles, those awe-inspiring events that seemingly defy the laws of nature, have long captivated the human imagination. While miracles are often associated with specific religious beliefs, there is a perspective that suggests these extraordinary occurrences can transcend religious boundaries. In this article, we will explore the belief that miracles can happen for anyone, irrespective of their religious affiliation. By embracing a universal lens, we open ourselves to the profound possibilities that miracles hold for all individuals, regardless of their faith in a religion or lack thereof. One might think this is irrelevant since it occurs anyways, but this can be used to dissect issues concerning religion.
Miracles Unbound by Religious Borders:
Let us begin by dismantling the notion that miracles are exclusive to particular religious beliefs. By adopting an inclusive viewpoint, we recognize that extraordinary events and experiences can manifest in the lives of people from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions. What comes to mind when unimaginable things happen in other religions. Yes, the Bible talks about false signs and wonders. So how about miracles in Judaism and Islamic religion. Are these miracles from the devil? Why is that? If not, then it means … (fun: We’ll also talk about judgement)
Believing that a creator allows all miracles to occur, if that is the case, then the creator is not affiliated to any religion. This in reality might seem there are many Gods, because each religion call the creator by different names, we sometimes think that this creator is affiliated to one particular religion and fail to see how infact God is universal and all religions around the world preaching the gospel are affiliated to this one God who is the creator, the only difference between various religions is the fact that it was created by different prophets and has different ways of worshipping.
The one true similarity all these religions have is preaching about loving our neighbours which clearly shows that we are serving the same God under different names for God is love. And that is why since we all pray to the same God we all get our prayers answered by him equally. And about those with no religion but someway somehow, still experience this wonderful adventurous occurrence of nature, I believe it is so because even though they are not really affiliated to any religion as long as we are all children of God and believe in him He’ll still work miracles for us. Believing in God does not make one affiliated to any religion. Therefore I draw one conclusion from this, if there’s a creator, He cares about all and one does not need to be in religion to experience wonderful miracles.
The Power of Belief and Faith:
In this section, we explore the role of belief and faith as catalysts for miracles. A deep sense of conviction, irrespective of religious affiliation, can open doors to experiencing the extraordinary. I believe how much you believe in something can affect things in ways we might not think possible. And that is why we are always encouraged to believe in ourselves. Think about it. “If you believe, you can achieve” they say. It is true, people tend to find it easier to put their trust in a supreme being and others than themselves. (fun: we’ll get back)
I think the degree of miracles that can happen in your life depends on the degree of belief and faith you have in yourself or others, a supreme being inclusive. And that is why the consequences for the same action may vary from person to person, you understand me right? There has been many instances for this experiences.
We’ll delve deeper in other articles…but before that, what do you also think? Your opinion in the comment session.
Miracles, those extraordinary events that transcend the confines of our understanding, possess the power to touch the lives of individuals from all walks of life. By adopting a perspective that acknowledges the universality of miracles, irrespective of religious affiliation, we open ourselves to the boundless potential of the extraordinary. Let us celebrate the stories of miracles that traverse religious borders, inspiring us to nurture unwavering faith, cultivate hope, and find solace in the interconnectedness of humanity. May we all be receptive to the miracles that unfold before us, realizing that they can occur for anyone, regardless of their religious beliefs or backgrounds.
