GUILT AND MORALISTIC GOD

Guided by conscience, and wishing to minimize or avoid punishment (included self-administered), I seek to live in accord with God-given moral standards. I believe that every person is born with a soul condemned to suffer, but by behaving properly one’s soul can be “saved.”   (Note: Some believe that a moralistic God’s favorable judgment can “save” someone. Upon death these souls spend a blissful eternity with God in heaven or paradise. Those souls with unpardonable sins spend an eternity in hell. )

 

REINCARNATION / KARMA

I believe I had a life before I was born, will survive the physical death of my body, and be born (physically) again. I think a non-physical essence (soul, consciousness, etc.) of each of us survives death and is part of a continual cycle of birth & rebirth.  (Note: some believe that, by overcoming desire and ego we can finally escape this cycle and attain Nirvana. Some build in "cosmic justice" where a person’s actions in one life produce karmic forces with consequences in future lives. Without involving God, some feel the moral arc of the universe bends towards justice.)
