Prayer for Pets: Can I Pray for My Pet?

Prayer for Sick, Lost, Dead Pets

Can I pray for my pet? Yes, you can pray for your pet. Dogs, cats or pets, are all created by the same God who created you. A prayer for pets is okay and this article will give details about this issue.

I have to admit that after uttering a prayer for my dog “Mickey”, a number of petitions began to cross my mind. “Shouldn’t I be praying for my family or my sick friend instead?” “Is God’s grace big enough to cover me and this little paw am holding in my hands?”

It’s not wrong to say a prayer for pets and it comes to my concern that prayers are not only meant for human beings, but also for all living creatures as they have a huge role they play. Trust me you, without these little beings roaming around us, we’ll definitely have something missing!

Would it seem right if God exercised his authority on animals selfishly as if we did not exist? There’s no debate that human beings will feel belittled and of course more questions would be raised to God.

Prayer for A Dead Pet

The loss of a pet comes with intense sadness, so whether verbally or by gesticulation, one has to express his/her agony. Here is a short prayer you can say for your pet:

“Our Father in heaven, You are the giver of life and the one who takes it. You created everything in heaven and on earth including my pet. I thank you for giving me this pet and now that it has departed from this earth, please make my pet’s soul comfortable in the afterlife, Amen”

Specifically, children from ages 2 to 5 need extra support when facing such predicaments. At this age, children aren’t mature enough to understand what death really means. Funny enough they have this magical way of thinking that death is reversible and transient.

It’s with no doubt that if you are a parent you have a lot of tasks throughout this course. However, you are advised to be honest and encourage your tot to share their thoughts and feelings freely with you.

Euphemisms such as “went away” or “put to sleep” are highly discouraged as they can scare or confuse your little one.

As a pet owner, keeping yourself busy for the sake of keeping busy doesn’t emit the grief and if you don’t deal with it at that particular time, it simply awaits you. As hard as it is facing what has to be faced and move forward!

In the atmosphere of a demised pet, you may find yourself a little bit sentimental and explain that: “The veterinarians have done everything they could, but…” or “It’s now better in that the pet won’t experience the pain anymore.”

Can I Pray for My Dead Dog?

Yes, it is fine to pray fray your dead dog. It’s very kind and thoughtful of a person to pray for his/her dead dog. It signifies care and affection. Prayer is usually rendered for things and people who are crucial to us.

Dogs are one kind of animal that has sparkling hearts. These are faithful beings with adorable traits that converged naturally in them.

Just as a child is trained to have certain morals and act in a certain manner, dogs are no different. They have a ‘systematic intuition’ and tenacity, making them adhere to instructions and imitate some actions that we do in their sight.

According to the scriptures, God commanded Noah to take a pair of each type of animal into the built ark so as to keep them safe and sound from the floods that were about to destroy the earth.

Are you still wondering whether to pray for your deceased dog? Continue reading bellow why prayer for pets is okay and why you should keep doing it every other day if you love your pets.

What the Bible says about God’s care for animals

What Does the Bible Say About Prayer for Pets?

Yes, the bible talks about caring for any animal and that includes your pets. Never be cruel to them since a true believer should know that the same God who created you is the same that created any living creature around you.

“The righteous care for the needs of their animals but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”

Proverbs 12:10

This bible scripture gives us a crystal clear picture of how important animals including pets are to us and God. If not, could God provide nourishment for something that’s not beneficial and immensely useless to him?

“Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or gather crops. They don’t put away crops in storerooms yet your father who is in heaven feeds them. Aren’t you worth much more than they are?”

(Matthew 6:26)

Just when I think I’ve heard it all, I often come across people who seriously believe that God is a big, magnificent God and He can handle taking care of all his creatures.

It’s of no use to erase such thoughts because that’s the absolute truth. But it could be better viewing God’s power in the right perspective.

If by any chance, a friend asks you to pray for their sick pet, most probably you will take it by surprise but at the end adhere to the request.

Here’s a little prayer for healing your sick pet;

“Lord I thank you for your awesomeness and for providing every need for my pet and I. So I come asking for healing for my sick pet. May your perfection be fully filled in my pet’s life. Amen”

Why We Should Always Pray for Pets

When our first family dog succumbed to a mysterious disease, my father suffered terribly.

He usually was a cheerful being but abruptly he changed. He would sometimes come from work and just sit alone under the shade of a guava tree and gaze into the empty skies.

Believe it or not he sometimes woke up crying in the night. But why did it have to affect him to such an extend?

The main reason why prayer for pets is important is that even when they fall sick or die, we know how to commit them to prayers and have hope that they are fine with their creator. When you don’t pray for your pet, you will never know how to start when you lose them.

A Prayer for pets will also help you overcome the pain of losing them or even give you comfort that they will be fine when they fall sick.  This helps emotionally and physiologically since you will always know that all is well after prayers.

For many people, the death of a pet is comparable to losing a beloved such as a relative.

When a human dies, eulogies, obituaries come in hand to act as a consolation. Oh! How I would love it when my employer decides to offer me a bereavement pay for the loss of my pet!

These beings portray entertainers and offer perfect companionship. Keeping in mind that dogs have about 10 vocals whereas cats have over one hundred. What makes you think you could surpass them in a music competition?

Can I Train My Dog How to Pray?

Have you ever watched your dog sleeping then suddenly waking up as if his/her prayers have been answered? As much as I pray for my dog, I would expect it to do the same. But how?

That’s where the controversy comes in. It’s with no doubt that some may clash about this, but dogs can be trained to pray and it is important to do so since they have feelings and they will also connect and feel God’s presence just like you do.

This is how to teach your dog how to pray;

  1. Locate a spot. It should be comfortable for him/her to lay without discomfort. A couch would be perfect.
  2. Lure your dog to the couch (or bed), let him face it but right up close against it.
  3. Move his paws up. He might feel awkward sitting in that spot so it might take a few tries for him to adjust.
  4. Make him place his chin down. Slowly and gently move him/her back until the chin rests on the couch. In most cases, you’ll have to lure it with a treat in hand. Definitely that’s cute as you just want to make your dog comfortable.
  5. You may now do the same and begin a prayer. Make the prayer quite short especially during the first trials. This trick is no joke as it can take you about 10-15 minutes but it’s worth it.

How Do You Honor a Deceased Pet?

The demise of a pet means a loss of a source of unconditional love, a comforter, a devoted companion. Life can also suddenly change the meaning, no more daily strolls, or warm greetings after a long day at the office.

Honoring a deceased pet, How to Pray for Pets
Honoring a deceased pet, Prayer for Pets

Here are 5 Ways to pay tribute to your deceased pet:

  • Holding a Pet Farewell Ritual

Service may be held for a dog or cat that has passed on, in memory of the positive impacts they have brought in your life.

  • A memorial stone

Stone can honor your pet’s memory and offer a constant reminder of them to you by crafting their name on it.

  • Photo Album

It is a very good idea to take pictures with your pet when still alive for reference in memory of the pet.

  • Planting a tree

Growing a tree can be one of the best ideas in memory of your pet. As you took care of your pet you may do the same to the tree.

  • A Portrait

Looking for an artist to paint a special portrait of your pet to display at your home can act as a reminder of their life.

Prayer for Euthanized Pet

At times, due to an ailment, a pet may undergo so much pain forcing the owner to get it assassinated to shrink its suffering. This process doesn’t have to cause pain to the animal. There can be a peaceful procedure with little distress as possible, making it gently slip away.

But how do you know it’s time to put your pet down? Might you take away its life too soon and miss valuable moments? These are some questions to ponder on before making that permanent decision:

  • What is the behavior of my pet? Are they at least eating, drinking and excreting? Are they enjoying being around me anymore?
  • Is there a chance for it to recover after treatment? Can I access the treatment as soon as possible?
  • If by any chance my pet recovers, will it resume the normal lifestyle as before?

If your answer is no to more than one of these questions, its time to proceed with euthanasia with the help of a veterinarian.

A word of prayer for your pet in such a case can do you well. It executes your pure feelings for the animal and gives so much relief to your conscience. This may entail handing over your responsibility to the creator of your pet.

 In most cases, prayer is often made before getting rid of it. In an instance of losing a cat, you may say;

“Dear Lord it hurts me more to see my cat “Java” going through this trauma as I can do nothing. Please keep it safe in paradise. Amen”

Will I See Pets in Heaven?

There’s no compromise that animals will be in heaven. Animals are very beautiful in a unique way.

Since paradise is said to be in heaven and possesses all the adorable things that we have ever imagined, how could pets miss out on this list? That could be way out of order!

Muslim prayer for pets should be based on the fact that the Holy Quran does not deal with the question of animal’s places in heaven.

According to verse no 5 in Surat Al-Takwir in Quran chapter 81, animals are questioned at the Day of Judgment but there’s no evidence that they will enter heaven.

Christians, on the other hand, have it that the Holy Bible to be precise, the book of Revelation, provides a particular stirring image of the Lord coming back riding on a horse. This means that you will also see your pets in heaven or the afterlife.

This is significant and pulls us into believing that pets are in heaven and in case we make it; we are likely to see them.

Loss of Pet Sympathy

Offering condolences for your pet can be extended in a sympathy card. You can choose to write messages that will bring you comfort.

In most cases, sympathy cards are written by friends to comfort another friend for the loss of a pet, as this may help ease the pain.

A sympathy card may also entail poems, messages that bring consolation and ease during such hard times.

Here is an example of a poem sympathy for deceased pet:

                Crossing Paws

When golden eyes no longer glow,

No soft padded paws to run,

No voice far greater than mine,

And we both know it’s time to go.

Although my eyes are filled with tears,

I didn’t want to go first,

I fought with all my strength,

But something seems to draw me now.

So hold me now just one more time,

For I must go some other round,

As you’ll feel my presence in summer,

And when you miss me, ill be there!

Buddhists Prayer for Dead Pets

In Buddhism, especially the Tibetan, it is important to “get over yourself” and focus on the well being of the dead pet and give it as much comfort as possible. Wailing is highly discouraged to avoid upsetting the pet.

“Mantras”, which are sacred statements that are considered to possess mystical or spiritual effects are murmured in the ears of a demised pet. One may say, “OM MANI PEME HUNG” or even better, “OM AMI DEWA HRI”.

Thus the syllables mean that through the practice of a path, that is a union of love and compassion, you can transform your impure body and mind into a pure exalted body. The merits of reciting this have no limits and cannot even be described by the Buddha.

Catholics Prayer for Deceased Pets

St Francis, the patron saint of animals is credited to have an attachment to animals and allegedly preached to the birds.

Therefore, a prayer is said to ask for courage and strength to help him/her cope with the loss of a pet. In a moment of distress in memory of a pet, Catholics find a calm environment and say this prayer;

“Gentle St. Francis I bring you thanks for (name of pet) who lived among us and gave us freely of his/her love. Please watch over my pet and keep him/her safe. Amen”

Wiccan Prayer for a Passing Pet

This faith is associated with paganism. It is believed that the forces of nature help Wiccans overcome the painful death of a beloved pet believing that they will be guided after the death of their pet.

There are also magical tools that can be used including salt, a pink candle, water, incense such as mint, two stones to represent your pet and yourself, 4 matching crystals and a small tray, plate or dish.

The pieces are arranged, a moment is taken to meditate quietly as they focus on the two stones touching each other. The pet owner takes both stones and holds them tightly as he/she recalls the memories that were made by the pet.

After the rituals, the mourners leave to move on with their lives putting their whole trust in spiritual forces of nature.

How Do I Burry A Dead Pet Religiously?

Considering your denomination, you may find a suitable way to burry your dead pet. In some instances, cremation is preferred to burying. Despite that, many pet lovers opt to bury their pets in the backyard, to keep their remaining around them.

You can bury your dog religiously by following those steps:

  1. The first step is preparing the cremation or burial area
  2. Have all those who were leaving with the pet near the cremation or burial area
  3. Say a prayer like this one; “And if I go while you are still here, know that I still live, vibrating in another cloud behind a thick veil you cannot see through. You will never see me again but when you need me, whisper my name and ill shine in your heart and bring you comfort”
  4. Proceed to cremate the body or bury it
  5. Thank God for its life and wish the pet a happy afterlife

Though at times, burying is discouraged when a pet dies because of a contagious disease, the reason being sooner than later another pet might dig up, eat the carcasses making the situation reoccurring.

So it’s prudent to cremate any deceased animal since it is a safe manner that will not affect you or another pet negatively henceforth. This will always favor the act of cremation.

After a loss, life tends to move on though not in the same manner. Your grief comes in waves but clear with time.

Face the grief, cry, scream, but it is equally important to understand that there was no more you could have done to keep them alive.

You are not being disloyal to your pet by forgetting about it, but eventually, you’ll have to adjust to life without your companion. Get a new pet and it’s your choice to name it after your dead pet.

As much as you need prayer, your pet needs it more. Life is a journey, not a destination and it must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations.

Prayer for pets is a good sign of love for your pet. You should care for your pet as if it meant nothing less but the whole world to you.

Treat pets just like you would treat your fellow humans since it also has life from the same God as you. So what if it were human and grant you similar conduct. Would you like it? Food for thought!

Do Curses Work? -Effects & Curse Breaking

Do Curses Work

Yes, curses exist and they work. While Christians and traditionalists might believe in some curses and their effectiveness, atheists couldn’t care much.

Your background beliefs or cultural practices will dictate what you believe in. However, when it comes to curses, that doesn’t exist because curses can work against anyone.  

Curses in Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism are considered to be a punishment from God. When you refuse to listen to the word of God, blaspheme and go against your elders, you will be punished by God and this is the definition of a curse in Christianity.  

Depending on whom you ask if curses work, the answer might not always be the same and may vary based on how they are thought to believe from their background. It is, therefore, best to look for facts like those stated in this article.

There is no scientific documented evidence that I have found that supports the working of any curses and that is why atheists don’t believe in curses but rather Luck. Most Atheists (not all) strongly argue that there is nothing like a curse and you are just either lucky or not lucky.

Do Curses Work
Do Curses Work

How Do Curses Work?

Yes, curses work in different ways depending on what culture or religion you come from. What is a curse in one religion that may not be a curse in another religion of culture? There are two major types of curses that seem to occur throughout the globe.

These are the verbal and spell induced curses. The verbal curses are simply utterances that don’t involve more than that. Verbal curses are practiced mostly by Muslims and Christians in that they do not use materialistic things to curse someone.

Most religions believe so much in the power of speech to either cause good or harm toward a particular group of people or just a single person.

This is normally done by elders and you should always seek their forgiveness so that they can intervene and pray for you in relation to the curses cast on you.

This kind of curse just then involves only two steps that is making the curse utterance to the target or targets directly or indirectly.

Traditional Curses

Spell induced curses involve more steps and were popular in the traditional ancient ages before civilization took effect on us. This begins with a person or group that intends to harm another person or group.

In most instances, the assailants visit a spiritual medium mostly a “witch” or a “witch-doctor” or a “voodoo doctor”, whichever the case depending on the culture or religion of the people.

The visit is usually followed with a brief description of what the assailants would want to happen to their victims.

The spiritual medium then asks for provisions from the assailants which are usually bizarre and might include personal paraphernalia of the intended victims which Christians do not believe in.

Upon delivery of the provisions required to the spiritual medium, the incantations begin and a series of activities are performed by either the spiritual medium or both the assailant and the spiritual medium.

In some instances, the curse ends here and the assailants are to expect or hope that harm befalls their victims, but in some instances, the assailants are tasked with a very specific set of instructions to which they are expected to perform in order for the spell to work.

Whichever the spell, there has not been any scientific evidence that curses actually work and with the eradication of most of religious and culturally beliefs, more and more people stop believing in the working of curses.

Christian and Muslims are really against such curses that involve the use of materialistic things that are made by man. They believe that it is God that should Judge and only God can deliver you from a curse which is a punishment from him.

Who Can Curse You?

According to many cultures and religions, the people who can curse vary from culture to culture and the type of curse too. In most instances, verbal curses are generally rendered by elderly members of the community mostly toward the younger members for whichever reasons.

Such curses are said to affect the cursed even without their knowledge. In some religions, including the all known Christianity, such curses can affect the cursed and their future generations.

These, therefore, means or implies that one can be experiencing a curse that has been passed down through his or her family members.

On the other hand, spell induced curses can be induced by anyone who is willing enough to go through all the trouble to ensure that evil or harm befalls their victims. As explained before, these processes can be quite involving and sometimes even costly.

This therefore follows that anyone motivated to impose a curse on another person, and has the means to see it through can curse whoever they want when they want to.

In most religions, gods or deities can curse their subjects for various reasons, which could be the behavior of their subjects or un-satisfactory offerings made to them.

The earliest cases could probably be that in the bible where God cursed Cain Genesis 4-12:

“When you till the ground, it will no longer yield its produce to you. You will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.”

Genesis 4-12

This is the same for most religions that believe in a supreme being, the subjects of the supreme beings are well aware that they could be cursed for not fulfilling certain obligations or even engaging in certain unwanted practices according to the guidelines that have been put by the religion.

Curses Effects, Signs and Results

Those are the proofs that curse work and they can harm you if you keep thinking they don’t work. The emotional effects of a curse usually involve instilling fear and emotional instability of the victim.

This may cause the person who has been cursed to make unwise decisions and go ahead to engage in self-destructive things.

During this period the person undergoes frustrations which end up in confusion and depression.

This type of curse usually ends up rendering the cursed in a state of mental illness or madness and their victims lose all sense of reality to the normal world.

The physical effects of a curse can vary from person to person. These can be classified into two. Mainly the is the curse to causes the inflicted to be unable to perform certain normal duties like reproduction, senses, walking, talking and many more.

These effects render some form of disability to their victims. Secondly, the physical effects can cause some sought of wound or sickness to their victims.

Some of these illnesses might be hereditary and thus some people may come to the conclusion the sick people are suffering from some sought of generational curse.

For serious curses, the physical effects might lead to death. Whether or not that is true is subject to one’s belief and cultural background. Some behavior can be attributed to curses all around the world.

Some people who have even been confronted about such peculiar or bad behavior can’t even explain why they engage in such behavior and admit that there could be a possibility that they were cursed.

For these types of curses, the cursed folk might have no clue who might have cursed them while some believe that what they do is a result of generational curses.

Such behavior might include Stealing, alcoholism and substance abuse, sex addictions, bizarre cravings and many more. People who suffer from these kinds of curses might desperately want to stop those behaviors but are not able to.

Can Curses Come Back to You?

Yes, curses can come back to you and here is why. Whether or not curses can come back to someone heavily depends on the type of curse and the target of the curses.

In most religions, it is believed that if people are not in a position to curse their supreme beings and they attempt to do so will have the curses come back to them.

This might cause serious repercussions to those who do so or even attempt to so. In this respect, therefore, curses can come back to one and sometimes even with worse consequences than initially intended for subjects.

In some cultures, certain people are believed to be protected against curses either by religion or spiritual protection practices.

It is important to be careful with your words and not to throw random curses because you may be cursing the wrong person and the curse will work against you.

Religious leaders and spiritual mediums in most cases are believed to be protected against curses invoked to them by the general population that consults them.

In some instances, attempting to curse such people can either revert the intentions of the curse or simply fail to work.

Most cultures around the world believe that only the elderly in the community can invoke curses to the young and not vice versa. In this respect, then they believe that curses they invoke upon the young cannot come back to them.

Do Verbal Curses Work?

Verbal curses may be intentional or unintentional. Most verbal curses are unintentional and seldom work. Such a curse could include a child cursing their parent for punishing them or a person wishing bad luck for their ex-partners for breaking their hearts.

In man traditions however, the words of the elderly and significant people are heavily revered and believed to carry a lot of weight in them.

These people are therefore believed to have the power to curse people whether knowingly or unknowingly and are therefore accorded the utmost respect in their communities.

Spiritual mediums and members who are heavily involved in occult practices are also believed to curse people verbally especially when offended. For this reason, therefore, other people in the community tend to tread carefully around such kind of people for fear of being cursed.

Ultimately, the answerer to whether verbal curses work is really dependent on the belief of a certain person but there is no scientific proof the working of the verbal curses.

If You Curse Someone Will It Happen

Yes, your curse can work against someone and come to pass as intended but this depends on several factors. Some people are also natural strong in the spiritual realm.

That means that they are born with a spirit that easily connects with the spiritual world. Such people can actually wish you bad luck and it will surely come to pass.

The ultimate intention of cursing a person is usually to cause or bring harm or evil to that person. depending on how the curse is orchestrated might determine the outcome of the curse.

In most cultures around the world, most people tend to believe that curses especially spell induced curses can only work within a certain geographical region.

It is also well to note that they only work to a group practicing a certain religion or cult.

Some curses are invoked out of anger and might not necessarily work. Depending on the background of people, curses work if a good deal of effort is put towards cursing someone.

In some instances, however, coincidences happen and people are left blaming themselves for certain occurrences believing that they were involved in their happening because of some utterances they might have made.

How Long Does Curses Take to Work
How Long Does Curses Take to Work?

How Long Does Curses Take to Work?

There is no definitive answer as to how long a curse takes to work. However, some people claim that their curses worked instantly, others weeks, months and years. A good case to consider would be two hypothetical cases of a curse.

In one curse a person is cursed to never be able to bear children while in the other a person is cursed to run blind.

While in the second case the person might run blind immediately it might take a considerable amount of time for the first case to materialize seeing as it’s not an everyday activity that a person bears children.

The amount of time it, therefore, takes for a curse to work thus depends on the nature of curse itself. It could be a long-term curse or an immediate curse.

How Can I Know Someone Cursed Me?

Most people would want to know whether or not they have been cursed. The following is sought of a check list that one could follow to know whether you have been cursed:

  1. Constant continuous bad luck
  2. Continuous financial difficulties that occur from nowhere
  3. Terrifying nightmares
  4. People distancing you for no good reasons
  5. Family deaths that occur unexpectedly
  6. Demonic hallucinations

All these that have been mentioned above are classic signs that one has been cursed. The other most common way that people use is to consult religious leaders or spiritual mediums.

Religious leaders and spiritual mediums are believed to have the ability to delve into one’s spiritual aura and determine whether or not that person has been cursed or not.

In the case of spiritual mediums, they are also believed to pin point exactly who it is that cursed the person in order to find a way of revoking and reversing the curse.

Both Christians and Muslims can be delivered from curses through prayers. Other Religions also have their own ways of clearing curses.

Can Curses Bring Me Bad Luck?

Bad luck is actually an event or occurrence that happens to someone in a manner that they did not intend to happen only this time to their disadvantage. Bad luck tends to happen to most people at one time or another.

Curses are meant to bring harm to people and amongst the main type of harm caused by curses as reported by many people is bad luck, in most cases a series of bad luck.

This can always be reversed and it will also depend if you believe if luck does exist or not because some people do not believe in luck.

As discussed above, one of the ways one can know whether they have been cursed is by experiencing constant continued bad luck.

Curses can cause bad luck if the person that cursed intended that the curse brings bad luck to the cursed or that the bad luck becomes a tool of manifestation of the real intentions of the curse.

How to Break a Curse

There are many ways that have been suggested on how one can deliver themselves from a curse.

For one to deliver themselves from a curse, they must have established that indeed they have been cursed and are suffering from the curse. The following are some of the ways one use to deliver themselves from curses:

1. One can use salt to cleanse themselves. It is believed that taking a bath in salty water tends to remove negative aura in person. Christians can also look for the power of salt in the bible and read more about it.

2. It is also believed that finding a four-leaf clover expels all type of bad luck from a person.

3. Some believe that taking a bath in water that has non-white flower petals sprinkled in it will expel all negative energy

4. Burning incense has been used for the longest time to expel unwanted negative energy and one could try it

5. For the religious people prayer might be the ultimate way to deliver them from curses

6. Some believe that keeping a gold fish is a way breaking any form of curses directed them, they believe that one must have 8 gold fish and black one.

7. Some people also use good luck charms to keep off negative energy. These could be bracelets, hair pin or even a ring.

8. Lastly one could consult a spiritual medium or religious leader who would then use their spiritual powers to deliver one from various curses.

Can a Christian be Cursed?

Yes, a Christian can be under a curse and it is a good thing that prayers and dedications can help in delivering a Christian from the misfortunes of a curse.

The word curse is an inherited word from the olden English language “curs” that implied an invocation or prayer for evil or harmful occurrences to befall one. In biblical context according to Genesis 3:17-19;

“Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life”.

Genesis 3:17-19

In the literal sense, the Bible is clearly stating that a curse is such an utterance has intent on invoking a supernatural force to cause unintentional harm or damnation upon a certain person or group.

(“GENESIS 3:17 KJV 2020) Perhaps a good example of the most common superstition or myth of a curse known to many around the globe is Friday the thirteenth.

This is a day that is believed to have been cursed and feared by many people believing that it brings misfortunes along with it.

It is, however, unclear why Friday the thirteenth is so feared, some say that it comes from the day before the last supper where thirteen people attended the gathering and the following day the crucifixion followed.

According to Mr. Frederic, the major types of curses include the following spells;

  1. A spell whose main aim is to destroy someone
  2. A spell that intends to make a person move away
  3. A spell that has the ability to make a person sick and die
  4. A spell that can lead one to fall in love with another oblivious of his or her feelings

Christians believe in verbal curses and they do not cast spells because they believe there are no teachings about traditional spells in the bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Verbal curses are those that work just buy mentioning the words.

Are Curses Real According to The Bible

Yes, curses are real according to the bible and there are several cases where people were cursed in the bible.

Before examining whether curses have power or not, it would be wise to look back at the earliest documentation of curses that actually worked in Christianity.

This would be during the Pharaohs era of the early Egypt during a period through which they experienced the ten plagues.

During this time Moses had demanded that if his people would not be set free, the following curses will be set on their oppressors:

  1. Water would turn into blood
  2. Frogs would take over the place
  3. Livestock would be diseased
  4. There would be a locust invasion
  5. There would be full of darkness
  6. There would be the death of all firstborn sons

All the above utterances came to pass and can thus be described as some of the earliest elaborate and clear curses in Christianity that came to pass.

In present-day society, the power of curses deeply relies on one’s belief. This is also proof that a Christian can curse someone if they are wronged according to the old testament.

The background and beliefs of many people dictate whether or not they believe in certain curses and their ability to make an impact on society. A good example would be a comparison of Christians, Atheists, and Traditionalists.

Conclusion as to whether curses work or not is relative and heavily relies on people’s cultural beliefs and religion. This is to imply that what might seem like a curse that works for certain people doesn’t necessarily apply to all other people.

Marijuana is known to have been used as a sacred herb in ancient China. This evidence was not revealed until around 20 years ago when farmers discovered the remains of a man in the area known as Xinjiang, In western China.

In addition to the same, the man had been buried with many possessions. Among his many possessions was a large amount of marijuana -789grams to be exact!

These intriguing findings have led researchers to believe that in this case, the herbs were used for its psychoactive properties as mentioned above.

In modern-day China, cannabis remains an integral part of the Uighur culture. Marijuana is also used in other different religions like the Hindu and the Rastafarians.

Marijuana’s use for spiritual purposes is believed to release this feeling of meditation and relaxation so as to cooperate in rituals related to spiritual matters, as common in ancient China.

Cannabis and Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening is a shift in consciousness and an initiation into an expanded sense of awareness and connective with cosmic intelligence. From a spiritual perspective, and from perspective of raising one’s vibration, can cannabis benefit on spiritual paths?

As mentioned cannabis alters your state of consciousness and shifts the perception. Consumption of marijuana either through smoking or ingestion does not support spiritual awakening but rather increases your sense of meditation elevation.

Taking cannabis alters one normal functioning of the body and therefore one becomes really low and inactive in spiritual matters other than the desired feeling of awakening.

Spiritual awakening is brought about by concentrating deep into spiritual levels and mostly it needs one to be sober enough, in which by taking cannabis that can’t happen unless cannabis doesn’t make you lose your conscience.

Understand that cannabis has different effects on different people so never assume that if it works for someone, it will also be fine with you.

In my opinion, taking cannabis in either way cannot and will not support spiritual awakening on a constant level for everyone since the effects are different for everyone. However, some religions which can be termed as exceptions do use cannabis for spiritual awakening as explained above.

Is Cannabis Used Spiritually in Any Religion?

Marijuana has a long-standing history in the world of religions. Marijuana was used in a variety of diverse communities habituated mainly in Asian communities.

Some of the main communities that practiced the use of marijuana are Hinduism, Taoism, Buddhism, ancient Greek, Ancient china, Scythians, and Rastafarianism.

The ancient and traditional Hindu mostly believed in the use of the weed in that it helped in spiritual awakening and made them strong in focusing during chakra awakening. In conclusion, the Hindu used cannabis Sativa for spiritual awakening.

Spiritual Effects of Smoking Cannabis

The spiritual effects are smoking cannabis are often overshadowed by the powerful level of highness it can induce.

When cannabis is used meditatively with intention and focus, its ability to clarify and amplify can both reflect on the illusions we carry.

This can also invite anyone who is an expert at it into higher meditation levels and make them exposed to a deeper, more relaxed, open-hearted presence that feels right and real. Some of the positive effects that it gives to those who use it during spiritual connections are;

  • It eliminates any selfish desire
  • It enables someone to achieve a state of naturalness
  • It assists in divination

According to religioncheck.com, smoking marijuana is a sin when you are using it for pleasure and actually an offense that can have you jailed in some countries. Cannabis should never be abused or used randomly since it can have serious damages in your life.

It can be put into more useful ways like drug enhancement and manufacturer and brought into use for medical purposes. This should also be done with permission from the relevant authorities in your county.

This is a common question that most of us find challenging and difficult to come out with the correct answer.

As Christians, we believe that taking cannabis is not advisable. However, this is contradicted by other ‘Christians’ who think that having this herb is quite okay.

For instance, a survey conducted by the Public Religion Research(PRR) discovered that young Christians thought that marijuana use was morally acceptable.

The survey showed that half of the young adults (18-29) to be more specific, think that marijuana should be legalized.

This is brought about by the difference in ideas and perceptions in the mind of cannabis. People have different beliefs as far as cannabis is concerned.

Spiritual Uses of Marijuana for Meditation

Marijuana tends to boost your meditation practice with simple stress relief. It deepens a meditator’s spiritual life creating a bigger room for mental focus. Yogic meditators aim to collaborate with the divine to achieve liberation with the use of marijuana. 

Spiritual uses of cannabis in traditional and ancient days were done by elders who were special in predicting the future. They Smoked it to help them enter into a deep and higher level of focusing that would help them see into the fur=true and predict it correctly.

That is why it way cannabis and spirituality were connected in ancient days and one was not allowed to use it without the supervision of the elders. Misusing it could also risk one’s life of connecting to unwanted spirits that could harm the entire village.

Marijuana is used to create a positive vibrational shift by shifting your perception and state of mind. It is lightly intoxicated and inhaled during meditation purposes and can, therefore, be used for spiritual elevation and meditation purposes.

It is used in meditation with the intention to focus and expand on a particular goal. It has an ability to clear and strengthen our illusions and opens us to a deep, relaxed and comfortable presence that feels right and connected to a higher spiritual realm.

How Did The Wiccans Use Cannabis spiritually?

The Wiccans practiced the use of marijuana for a quite long time but those were in traditional days. Some of the classic uses are dedicated to love, money, healing, and visions. One of the main infamous usages of marijuana is used for magical works.

Marijuana has not only been used in religious ceremonies but also has long standing traditions in numerous world faiths.

However, the spiritual use of cannabis to become closer to God can also be linked to the ancient Chinese who were among the first to elaborate on the use of the sacred plant.

Is It A Sin to Use Cannabis for Medical Purposes?

Cannabis, only when used for medical purposes is very beneficial. It helps in one’s recovery since it is used as medicine.

Cannabis should be put more into practice on the side of medication other than doing it more on smoking and self-pleasures. It is therefore not a sin to use cannabis for meditative purposes.

It is not a sin to use cannabis for medicinal purposes, however, there is not enough research and supporting evidence to reinforce its advantages. Some countries have legalized the use of cannabis for medical use.

It is used to treat several illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease, appetite loss in people with HIV/AIDS, cancer, Crohn’s disease, anorexia, epilepsy, glaucoma, mental health conditions, multiple sclerosis, cachexia, nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy and pain.

The reason why marijuana’s eligibility is in question is that it has some of the chemicals found in tobacco which could harm the lungs, however, the effects don’t have enough evidence either.

Long term use has its side effects like memory and cognition problems, the risk of addiction and schizophrenia in young people.

Is Marijuana Good for Medication?

Marijuana can be both good and also not acceptable for medication. In addition, several marijuana-based medications have been approved or are undergoing clinical tests.

Nabiximols(sativex®), a mouth spray that currently available in the United Kingdom, Canada and several European countries for treating the spasticity pain.

Researchers generally consider medication like these, which use purified chemicals derived from based on those in the marijuana plant to be more promising than the use of the whole marijuana plant.

An additional concern with “medical marijuana” is that little is known about the long-term impact of its use by people with health and/age-related issues such as old adults or people with cancer, AIDS or other neurodegenerative diseases.

Further research will be needed to determine whether people whose health has been compromised by diseases or its treatment, for example, chemotherapy, are at greater risks for adverse health outcomes from awakening

How to Identify Religious Brainwashing

There are a lot of signs of brainwash and most of them are very obvious to any sober person. Before they win you, they will take the following steps;

1. Religious brainwashers will out you in isolation

This person will always make sure you are not around your loved ones. They will constantly check on you and who you are with.

They do not like someone with different opinions to come close to their targets because they believe their belief will be questioned.

It is not a physical isolation but rather mental isolation. They know how to play this game and they are good at it. They will even make you not rust your partner in marriage. They make you feel everyone is wrong and it is only them that is right.

2. They will attack your yourself-esteem

After religious brainwashers have known a lot of details about their target, they major on the target’s self-esteem. They have an upper hand on someone who has low self-confidence and a vulnerable state person.

A brainwasher will control everything about the victim’s life from food to everything. You became their prey when you are always feeling useless rejected and alone with a desperate urge to find someone to lean on.

3. Religious brainwasher will start comparing ‘Us vs. Them’

The brainwasher will bring down the victim and will shape on his or her way the by making the victim mingle with the brainwashed people. They will encourage you only to flock with their members and that others are sinners.

This is a way of blind folding you. Remember, Jesus used to go and look for sinners talk to them and make them turn to God. Prophet Mohamad, may peace be upon him encouraged Muslims to look for those who are lost and show them the right way.

 If you don’t mingle with sinners and make them turn to God, how then is your religion a true one? You have to be free and liberal. Religion should teach you perseverance with faith and hope in God.

Any religion that locks you up to only sit with your kind is a false religion and you are being religiously brainwashed in a way that you cannot see the world in an independent way. Remember, some people may not be in your religion but they are the best people out there.  

4. Blind obedience

Brainwasher will always want to make the targeted to follow his commands without questioning and will reward the victim when they do what pleases. They will punish the victim when they do not do what pleases them.

They will make you feel like God does not answer your prayers unless you go through them.

They make you feel inferior and that you don’t know anything about God. This is just a weapon for them to brainwash you and keep you locked on their chains.

5. Constant Follow-up

Brainwashers will continually want to see what impact they have made on the victim. They will also want to see how they can manage the victim by controlling. This brainwashing is real and it is within the society in many forms.

How to Reverse Religious Brainwashing & Trauma

Religious trauma is a syndrome of withdrawal from certain religious beliefs that is basic and humane in nature.

One tends to now follow new doctrines that are strange and weird in nature. Withdrawal and isolation with aggression are major symptoms of religious trauma.

You can reverse religious brainwash by making the victim know that he or she is being misled by brainwashing.

  1. You can also relieve someone from religious brainwash and trauma by exposing the victim’s knowledge that is different from their brainwashing.
  2. You have to leave the victim to make his or her decision depending on the knowledge you gave him. Let them practice the benefits of being independent and free like a bird that is not caged.
  3. You know you are in a cult and not a church when the practices you are doing affect your ability to think critically in making decisions. One cannot think of what he or she is doing if it is good or bad. Set the victim free by clarifying this to them.
  4. Religious cults make victims stay away from any other people apart from its members. When they stay with outsiders who are not members of their cult, they are punished. Make the victim more comfortable when you are with them so that they see the difference.
  5. You can help reverse this kind of religious brainwash by first keeping the victim away from the cult and talking to them in the best way they can understand.
  6. Religious cults emphasize other evil things that are not in scriptures. They create their ways of doing things to help then in brainwashing their followers. The best way to reverse and stop this religious brainwash is to read the Bible, Quran or Follow the True teachings of your religion that are not new to the world.
  7. Brainwashers also seek members of their church to become more loyal to their leaders. The best and easy way to control and reverse this is by breaking the loyalty bond.

Some religions that brainwash people can make you turn against your family members and real friends who care about you just because they are not in that religion.  

This can be broken and stopped by trying to fill in the gap that the religion is trying to use in one’s life thus making them vulnerable.

Sit the victim down and try to understand what they are looking for in that cult so that you can reverse their religious brainwash from the points they give you.

Religion Free From Brainwashing

Several religions go by what their books are saying and you will have to identify that certain religion is good based on the fact that they let you continue with your daily life as long as you remember the Lord your God.

True religion will never bind you in a way that you cannot even interact with others. They will let you explore your life as you wish as long as you are putting God first in everything you do.

A true religion that is free from brainwashing will help you in keeping an open mind. You will be let free to carry on with your daily life, job and life without judgment or discrimination because no man is perfect before God.

True religion will make you see a difference in your life both physically, mentally and psychologically. It will give you peace and you will also learn to appreciate others that are around you even if they are not from your religion.

Why Some Religions Brainwash Their Followers

Brainwashing was first used by Edward Hunter in the year 1950. He used this term to describe how the Chinese government made its people to work with them.

The person who is trying to brainwash you will want to know every detail about you so that they use it as a weapon to manipulate your beliefs.

The aim of religious brainwash is to make you committed to that religion without any questions so that they use you as they wish.

Some people believe that all religion is brainwashing while others think otherwise.

In my opinion, true religion will help make you a better person and you will see improvements in your life birth physically and spiritually. Any religion that makes anyone behave like a robot is brainwashing them.

There are a lot of religions and human beings fall under different religions. Faithful from these religions have accepted their culture without questioning.

Every faithful believer believes that his or her religion is correct and powerful because of what was created in their minds.

Avoiding Religion Brainwash

Soul-searching yourself why you want to follow a religion and why you want to follow a religion is very important. Try to discover their doctrines and look at the pros and cons from all angles before you join any religion.

This will help you in keeping away from religious cults especially those false prophets and pastors in the church today that are only after making money. They are not interested in your life or wellbeing but rather they pretend to care.

You should never make a quick decision with no life experience. It needs critical thinking to make a lifetime decision on which religion to go.

Take your time and make an independent but the right decision after asking questions and getting proper answers.

You have to stop thinking that which religion is better than the other religion. Just do your research on all of them and find the right one only after wide consultation. If you are smart, you will find the truth with God’s guidance.

Understand the advantages and disadvantages of people who believe to be of certain religions and you have to decide for yourself which religion to go to. Think about what you want and your course in life. Don’t just let anyone manipulate you.

Remember, even those religious leaders are not perfect before God. Man is to error and we all have sinned before God.

So, as much as you are seeking guidance, open your mind and listen deeply with God’s guidance so that you can detect those religious brainwashers out there.

Does God Love Christians or Muslims?

God loves both Christians and Muslims in equal measures even if they have different ways of praying with different books that they regard to be from God. They are all children of God and none is special than the other.

How Does the Quran Describe God’s Love?

The Quran stresses on Allah’s singularity and sole sovereignty, the doctrinal tenet is known as tawhid which means oneness. Allah never sleeps or tires, He is transcendent but reacts to everything through his omnipresence and divine knowledge.

He creates out on nothing without consultations. Allah has no offspring’s. Allah is therefore the creator, judge and rewarder as per the Quran. Allah is unique(Wahid) and inherently one(ahad).

Finally, Allah (SWTL) is omnipotent and all merciful therefore he is the highest, protector, compassionate and forgiving. The Muslims religion is therefore all about total and complete submission to Allah and the following of his scriptures.

Secondly, another major tenet in the Islamic and Christians world is the issue of God’s love towards them. The Quran and bible expresses various verses that proves Gods eternal love towards them.

In the Quran, Allah is also known as Rahman the Raheem which are translated to merciful and compassionate in vague. But the true definition is that of motherly love which is seen as loving, caring, compassionate and empathetic.

The Quran mentions two kinds of love, one is Rahma the other is Hub. Allah has Rahma upon everything and everyone. “My Rahma has encompassed everything” Quran 7:157.

This shows God’s love towards his creation that is why he provides for everyone food, shelter, and life even those disbelieving in him and despite our sins. The Quran refers to rain as Rahma (Quran 35:45).

Allah’s love is not selective

God introduces himself in the first verse of the Quran as Rahman Raheem he wants the reader to know he is loving, compassionate and ever forgiving. The second level of Allah’s love is the hub and the hub is reserved for those who obey God totally.

Allah does not have a hub for special or certain types of people like oppressors, arrogant ones and liars. To attain this level of love one must obey God and follow his teachings (Quran 3:31).

Therefore, Allah is not a God who is out to punish but of love who sent Muhammad to bring back his people to the old ways.

How does the Bible Describe Gods Love?

In Christianity Gods love is voluminous in the context that it is expressed in many ways and for many centuries. In 1st John 4:8 Gods, the main attribute is love “whoever does not know love does not know God, because God is love”.

It doesn’t define God as love but shows how his love is within us in all he does. Christians believe that what they need is God’s love to conquer all. God shows us that everything he has done for us is out of pure love for us.

1 Corinthians 13:4_8 gives some description of love. “love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, does not dishonor others, it’s not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always hopes, always perseveres. Love never flops.

At the hub of these qualities is the unwavering aspect of God’s love shown by the convectional relationship and covenant with humans which dates back to the time of creation to Abraham and continued for ages.

Examples of God’s Love in The Bible

God maintains that same patience and mercy since Adam and Eve sinned, He provided for them clothing after forgiving them.

The time the Israelites rebelled against him he took them out of Egypt and maintained a covenant relationship with them and the story of Jonah who fled from the lord God but he delivered him from death.

God’s faithfulness and love throughout history has always been experienced by Christians who know how to pray the right way. God shows love through the act of salvation when he gave his one and only son to save us from sins.

In John 3:16, “for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” God sent Christ as a ransom for the defiant.

Jesus displays his love through the acts of healing the sick and dying on the cross. On the cross, he prayed for the forgiveness of the ones who placed him there. (John 3:16, I John 3:16, 4:10 and Romans 4:8) it shows that salvation is open to all who believe in Christ.

It shows that God’s love does not discriminate. The bible has shown his love when he sends various prophets like Nehemiah, Jeremiah, and Elijah to save us from judgment and bring us back to his arms.

In addition to us, God’s love is poured unto us through the holy spirit which leads us to do various good deeds for him and others.

His love is steadfast with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. (Deuteronomy 7:9)

To conclude this, always know that nobody has ever been punished by God based on religion. We are all punished or blessed based on our deeds.

We have rich Christians and Muslims, the same applies to the poor. This tells you that God Still Loves us all and he knows how to judge best. Never think that a Muslim or A Christian is special because are equally loved before God.

Will Christians & Muslims Meet in Heaven?

Will Christians and Muslims meet in heaven

The answer is No. Christians and Muslims will not meet in heaven because they describe heaven in different ways. They also practice religion with different beliefs. I.e Women who don’t cover their heads are a sinner in Islam while In Christianity they are not.

There are several reasons why heaven is not the same for Christians and Muslims as discussed in this article. The controversy is in the fact that some verses in the Quran stand against the drinking alcohol totally yet in paradise, there is a river of wine according to Christians.

These are some strong reasons why Muslims and Christians will not meet in heaven. In Christianity, Sadducees asked Jesus (Mathew 22:25) who will inherit the woman from the seven brothers.

Jesus said there is no marriage in heaven but in Muslim according to Surah at toor 52:17, the people who go to paradise will enjoy 70- 100 women and they will find beds that are ranked for them to enjoy in delight.

Will Christians and Muslims meet in heaven
Will Christians and Muslims meet in heaven

Fourthly, the issue of Christians and Muslims meetings in heaven is also not true.

It’s because Muslims paradise as seen in Quran, Surat 47:15 “there are rivers of milk, water, wine, honey that are delicious and never change in taste. There are fruits of all types to eat and forgiveness from the Lord.

The scripture also goes against marrying a lot of wives. They say one is enough among Muslims, one can marry a maximum of four but paradise promises a lot of wives.

The concept of paradise is mainly that of pleasure for both Christians and Muslims but with different concepts.

Christian scriptures according to revelation 21 shows a belief in a new heaven and eternal life whereby paradise will look like that garden where Adam and Eve were originally placed.

Heaven among Muslims is rooted in pleasure. It is therefore rendered impossible for the two to meet after death in the same heaven since they practice them believe in very different angles.       

Why Muslims and Christians Cannot Meet in Heaven

Heaven is not the same for Muslims and Christians because their method of prayer differs in all aspects based on different doctrines and they are done to invoke different responses.

Each prayer serves and has a specific reason or purpose. The Islamic religion consists of prayers like the confession of faith (shahada) “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.”

They pray five times a day facing mecca by bowing, keeling, paying alms, fasting in the month of Ramadhan and through hajj- pilgrimage to mecca.

The five salats are the daily prayers like Fajr, Zuhr, Asr, Magharib, Ishaa. Other prayers are followed during major events and the jumu’ah prayers, sunnat, salaat al-layl, eid, salah, dua, dhikr.

Christians prayers nevertheless differ based on the type of denomination one belongs to. There is the Catholics, the Methodists, Anglicans, protestants and eastern orthodoxy.

Example of prayers are;

  • The lord’s prayer
  • Hail Mary
  • Rosary
  • Liturgy of hour
  • Angelus
  • Act on contortion
  • Glory be to the father
  • Morning and evening prayers
  • The grace
  • Magnificent
  • Nicene creed
  • Serenity prayer
  • Epiclesis
  • apostles creed among other prayers

The prayers are done at different times and places in the Christian religion. The prayers show that none is more significant than the other.

Although the two religions are seen to pray in a different way, still there is proper evidence of the true and false religion no type of prayers or worship is grander than the other. They all seem to disagree with how their partners on the other side conduct their prayers.

Do Muslims Believe in the Holly Spirit?  

Muslims also believe in the holy spirit which was sent by Allah to his servant to send his divine will and commands to the people (Ghafir 15), “that the holy spirit was sent upon the prophet as the medium “.

In An- Nahl: 102 it clearly states that” the holy spirit brought it down from the Lord with the truth to strengthen those who believe and as a guidance and good tiding to Muslims.”

Others view that the holy spirit was sent to aid Jesus in his work (Al Baqarah 25:3), “we gave Jesus son of Mary, clear signs and strengthened him with the holy spirit.”

It is clear that the holy spirit is the angel jibrael sent by Allah to assist His chosen servants in their divinely ordained missions.

Difference between prophet Mohamed and Jesus Christ

The last point focuses on how the two different religions view each other’s prophets. Christians view on Muhammad is a bit vague as many Christians are not enlightened about him.

Those who know about him like various scholars and the early church view him as truly inspired by God to proclaim a strict monotheistic faith.

They therefore place him on the same level as the prophets of Israel and the early apostles of the early Christian church.

Christians see prophet Mohamed as the true prophet but fall short of the Muslim perception of him being chosen uniquely to utter the word of God.

Other Christians negatively view Muhammad as false and his revelation as deluded and opposed to the Christian beliefs.

Christians loyalty to Jesus teachings and laws differ from how Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught people to pray. This why they can’t accept Muhammad wholly in their religion which is Christianity.

Muslims named Jesus as Isa and as per the Quran, Jesus came with the Injil. Aong Muslims, Jesus is just like any other prophet, a miracle worker and a healer.

Muslims do not don’t see Jesus as the son of God. He is seen as one of the messengers of God. They also accept his return on earth, in eschatological times and they call it “the descents of Jesus”.

Jesus will descend from the sky and battle against ad-Dajjl or the antichrist. This strengthens our spirituality and those of believers.  He is the only prophet who got the title al-Masih or messiah which is found in the Hadith and not the Quran.

However, Muslims oppose the concept of Jesus utilitarianism that is his divinity and humanity by considering himself as the son of God.

They say in the Quran that Jesus always speaks the truth and when He says that He is the son of God, the concept is misunderstood by Christians scholars. They therefore reject Christ’s divinity.

In conclusion, Christian and Islamic religion are seen to have the same beliefs on the doctrine of God as well as and other vital concepts based on faith in God. They differ when it comes to how to serve God and each religion has a separate and contrary view.

In support of this, it does not mean that people of these religions must battle each other based on religion but they must unite to enrich each other’s religion by accepting corrections and correcting others view. We must live together as one universe in brotherhood.

Do Christians & Muslims Worship the Same God?

Do Christians and Muslims Worship Same the God, can they pray together

The concept of religion has been a cause of many disputes and it has also led to the rise and fall of many empires including countries for centuries.

Yes, Christians and Muslims worship the same God since there can only be one God. However, Muslims and Christians cannot pray together because they read form different books and pray in different styles. This cannot allow the two to pray under one roof.

The major religions of the world include Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism, African traditional religion and much more.

The concept of GOD is proven to be central in all religions although it seems to differ from one major religion to another based on the fat that they don’t worship in the same style. What is acceptable in one religion is a sin to the other religion.

This has caused differences in world religions on the basis of their beliefs, their ways of worship and the different rites and rituals in each religion.

The main conflict is between the Christian and the Muslim religion which has millions of followers around the globe.

Do Christians and Muslims Worship Same the God, can they pray together
Do Christians and Muslims Worship Same the God, can they pray together

Which God do Christians Believe in?

Christians have a different perception of a supernatural being compared to Muslims. They call their God Yahweh while the Muslims call their’s Allah. The God of Christianity is the eternal creator and he preserves all thins.

Christians believe that their God is both transcendent and immanent from the world. The doctrine of Gods existence has been argued for decades.

  • The bible as seen in exodus 3:14 is that he is self-existent and the source of all life.
  • According to John 5:26
  • It is also seen in Gen 1:1 which says that “in the beginning God.”

It, therefore, recognizes that men not only know of His existence but have a circle of ideas as to who and what he is.

Christians are known to believe that God’s immanence and involvement together with the love for humanity make Jesus be His son.

Christians look at Jesus as the son of God and were crucified on the cross to save humanity from sin.

Muslims, on the other hand, do not believe in the death of Jesus to save mankind. They don’t accept any relation of Jesus with God apart from the aspect that Jesus is a prophet just like Moses or Elijah.

Muslims believe that God is unique and can never be related to any human being whatsoever because God is pure of any sin unlike man. This explains why Muslims and Christians sometimes are perceived to be worshiping different Gods.

It also accepts Gods divine nature is united with Jesus Christ through the process of incarnation which is widely discussed in systematic theology. Christian theologists sought to discover the attributes and nature of God.

He is seen in the Lord’s prayer as our Father in heaven. The kingdom of heaven is clearly discussed in the synoptic gospels as the dwelling of God.

The doctrine of the trinity sees God’s nature divided into three God the father, God the Son and God the holy spirit.

Which God do Muslims Believe in?

Muslims, on the other hand, believe in Allah who is considered utterly unknowable. Muslims cannot view a God who desires a relationship with his creatures. It is actually considered blasphemous in their beliefs.

The relationship between Allah and humans is that of submission. Allah only reveals His will but not Himself.

Muslims practice a lot of discipline when it comes to prayers. Respect to God is Highly held and can never be compromised whatsoever.

The prayers are offered five times a day with rules and clear guidelines as stated by the prophet Muhamad, peace be upon Him.

Women and Men do not mix during prayer as Christians do thus bringing the question if the two worship the same God. They worship the same God but this is another reason why Muslims and Christians cannot pray together. 

In 610CE prophet Muhammad received divine revelation from Allah. Allah is in Arabic which means “the GOD”.

The Arabic scriptures and language is believed to be spoken by God himself hence it is seen as the basic language for Muslims.

Why Muslims and Christians cannot pray together

Christians and Muslims are believed to come from the same descendants Abram or Ibrahim.

However, the two won’t worship together because of the differences in their scriptures, their beliefs, rites and practices and the concept of God.

The two have one symbol of God but with different meanings. In Islam, Allah is the only god is therefore must be the same as the God in the Jews and Christians worships.

To Christians, Allah is just a name for one of the God of the universe. Others however view that the god of Muhammad cannot be the father of Jesus Christ.

The two Allah and Yahweh can be the name of the same God or of different Gods. It is there for unknown to the world if the two are the same or which Good is superior to the other.

The concept differs in Islam when Allah is seen as a remote, distant being who reveals his will but not a trinity.

Christian urge that the concept of Muslim God lacks a relationship with himself and his people hence love is not emphasized as compared to the Yahweh in Christians.

Allah among Muslims does not have any associates but is an arbitrary God. He is described as holly and has nothing to do with non-believers. Hence there is no concept on salvation.

Yahweh among Christians is seen as from the time of Moses He says “I am that I am”, Jesus referred to himself as God and “I am” in john 8:58.

Despite in His monotheism, creation, omnipotent, mercifulness, God and Allah can’t be referred to as the same person subject to Muslims and Christian description. First, their attributes are different and their will on humans.

After comparing the Allah of Quran and Yahweh its evident that the two don’t refer to the same God.

The concept that one is true than the other is also not true. Hence, worship of the God of Muhammad can’t be united with that of Yahweh the God of Christians.

Is Death the End of Everything?

Is Death the End of Everything is there Life After Death

Life after death has a lot to it than meets the eye. There is a difference between physical death and spiritual death. Your physical body will die and that is the end. Your spirit which is your soul cannot die and still lives on.

Is there life after death? Yes, there is life after death and this article seeks to explain this in detail. Continue reading below for more explanation of what happens after death.

Is Death the End of Everything is there Life After Death
Is Death the End of Everything is there Life After Death

Some people say that there is no life after death. However, remember that this applies to the physical body which dies and becomes lifeless. The question is why is it lifeless? It is because it has stopped working and your soul has left it.

Spiritually, we believe that life is based on your soul and your soul can never die with your body. That is where science and spirituality now differ. If you look at death from the angle of a scientist, there is no life after death.

If you look at the same form the angle of any on who believes in God, there is life after death because the soul is not physical and your soul bares your life. Your body is just a vessel that harbors your soul.

That is why we have dreams and there are also evidence in the past that can prove that there is life after death. Your soul will leave you physical body that will decompose and it has to go somewhere after that.

Where your soul goes will highly depend on how you live the live that you have now. So always try and be kind, treat others well so that your soul finds peace in the afterlife.

Where do we go immediately after death?

Christians & Muslims believe that after death, we either go to be with God or we go to hell based on how we used to behave and live our life on earth.

That is why religion encourages one to be human and do good so that they may have a peaceful afterlife.

Some Indians believe in reincarnation whereby you will die and your soul will come bike to this earth again in a different vessel. The current vessel here is your body. If you are good, you will come back in a better family or rank.

If you do bad in this life, you will comeback may be as a dog. That is why they don’t eat animals because you may be killing and eating an old friend.

Who want to eat their buddy, guess nobody right? That’s why it is important to understand that animals also have emotions and you should never treat them harshly.

Be good and kind to the animals around you since their great full soul will only bring you good luck in what you do.  

Scientifically, death is understood to be the state that takes hold after our hearts stop beating.

Blood circulation comes to a halt, we don’t breathe and our brains shut down, that is what divides the states we occupy from one moment of been alive to the next one of been dead.

While many people may have the sensations of near-death experiences, scientists believe that they aren’t afterlife-related.

Some people who report experiencing a close encounter with death is as a result of the brain failing to receive oxygen, which distorts our perceptions.

Some researchers have found elevated levels of CO2 in the bloodstreams of those who had body sensations which are linked to visual hallucinations.

Similar to the effects of hallucinogenic drugs, these sensations may be created by the chemical changes happening in a body on the brink of death.

The “white light” some claim to see unfortunately happens only in our minds: sadly, death, is what is at the end of the tunnel. Most atheists back their argument that there is no God or afterlife based on these facts from the scientists.  

Is there life after death or is it the end according to research?

Meier, D. E., Back, A. L., & Morrison, R. S. (2001) state that, life is there when those factors are all involved in it. Movement that is natural and inborn, reasoning and interaction, and being able to reproduce. Life is basically defined by those and if they stop, you are dead.

That’s when something is non-living and in humans recognized as death. If we were to look at it by logic, there is no life after death because death is cessation of life. Carroll, S. (2005) Contends that life after death is impossible.

While there are many things we don’t know about the world, he says, we do know about the particles that make up the human body and that they go nowhere after the body dies.

Consciousness’s been part of the physical body, it dies along with the rest of a person. Unlike other uncertainties in life, this concept is very straightforward that with death, life ends.

Proving that life after death is a theory and a myth that can only be described to be faulty at its best of definition. Apart from our dreams and feelings, we don’t see or hear of anyone who has supposedly passed on to another world.

However, we see exactly what happens to the human body after it stops working; the process of body decomposition may be a gruesome one, but it is also giving out an answer.  Coroners and archaeologists will agree on this fact: It doesn’t look like life exists after death.

Do you know you are dying when you die?

New study suggests that when you die you know you’re dead because the brain keeps functioning and you know what’s happening around you.

Medical experts have for very long debated what happens when a person dies, with evidence of sensations or bright light, and films exploring the unknown.

But a new study suggests a person’s consciousness keeps working after their heart stops beating and their body movements fails. Survivors of cardiac arrest were aware of what was going on around them while they were ‘dead’.

This includes seeing doctors trying to save them or hearing conversations before they are ‘brought back to life’, the study revealed.

This means that a person may even hear their time of death being announced by medics as they are essentially ‘trapped’ inside their body with brain function.

It has also been noted that people who talk too much will always visualize more compared to calm people.

Xu, J. (2016) said anecdotal evidence has found that people in the first phase of death may still experience some form of consciousness.

The expert told Live Science that people who have survived cardiac arrest later accurately described what was happening around them after their hearts stopped beating. 

He said: “They’ll describe watching doctors and nurses working, they’ll describe having awareness of full conversations, of visual things that were going on, that would otherwise not be known to them.

“Dr Parnia, of the NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York, said the accounts were verified by doctors and nurses, who were left stunned after learning that the patients remembered the details after being resuscitated.

His study is examining what happens to the brain after a person goes into cardiac arrest – and whether consciousness continues after death and for how long – to improve the quality of resuscitation and prevent brain injuries while restarting the heart.

According to religion, do you know why they were stunned, that is why spiritually God exists. Remember they say this person was dead, how then can they be able to see what was happening because the body is now dead? That alone is proof that your soul remains alive.

That there is the proof of life after death and even doctors know that somehow your soul is active while your body is just something that your soul lives in. That is why Christians say that your body is the temple of God and you should never defile it.

What happens to your mind when you die?

When the end comes, your experience will be a veiled secret known only to you but whatever it is, scientists say that the closing moments of consciousness could be powered by something mysterious and amazing taking place inside your brain.

In 2013, researchers at the University of Michigan found that after clinical death occurred in rats, their brain activity actually flared, revealing electrical signatures of consciousness that exceeded levels found in the animals’ waking state.

Scientists reasoned that if near death is experienced, stems from brain activity continues and correlates of consciousness should be identifiable in humans or animals even after the stoppage of cerebral blood flow.

That’s exactly what they detected with anaesthetized rats displaying a surge of highly synchronized brain activity within 30 seconds of an induced cardiac arrest, consistent with patterns you’d see in a highly aroused brain.

This study tells us that reduction of oxygen or both oxygen and glucose during cardiac arrest can stimulate brain activity that is characteristic of conscious processing.

While the findings do establish a new framework for interpreting where near-death experiences might come from, it doesn’t necessarily dictate that humans would undergo the same cognitive flare as rats that are dying.

But if our brains somehow surge in the same way, it could help to explain the sense of awareness reported by many people who are successfully resuscitated in medical emergencies.

I really do hope that you are following and understanding this based on answering what happens to our minds when we die.

We all imagine that the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating, but in these cases above, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart isn’t beating.

Even though the brain shuts down within 20 to 30 seconds after the heart has stopped sounds amazing, it’s worth noting that the phenomenon was only reported by 2 percent of patients. This is also the same facts that are used to explain dreams scientifically.  

Humans are unique and that’s why religion perceives that we are created in the image of god since some things will always remain a puzzle. Remember science will only discover what is already there and explain how it works.

We have to look up to the fact that before they are discovered, they are still there thus the proof that God exists weather you recognize him or not.

While science has given us some fascinating insights into what the brain’s final moments might be, the research is not conclusive thus you have to stay positive in life and keep an open mind that your life here on earth may just determine what happens to your soul when you die.

Does life stop after death?

What do you see when you die?

What you see when you die can be explained scientifically that when one dies, all the body parts don’t function including the eyes which humans use to see. This helps in concluding that after death one sees nothing.

From spiritual view and understanding, when a someone dies, his or her soul temporarily departs from the body awaiting the resurrection.

Those who have faith in Christ are carried by angles into the presence of the Lord, while those who have no faith in the Lord wait for judgment day and their soul goes to hell and burns there.

What happens to your body when you die?

What happens to your body when you die is as simple as your body is either buried or cremated depending on where you come from both traditionally or religiously. At the end of the day if buried, it will decompose. If Burt, it will turn to ash.

It has been faulty at best proving that life after death is feasible. Aside from within our feelings and dreams, we don’t hear or see of anyone who has supposedly passed on to another world.

However, we do see exactly what happens to the human after it stops working; the process of body decomposition may be a gruesome one, but also telling of what happens to the body when you die.

Archaeologists and coroners will agree on the fact that after death. Our body decomposes and becomes tiny particles just as we see soil.

That’s a physical fact that should not be a subject of discussion. Both religion & science nod in agreement in this.

What does death feel like?

Many humans anticipate knowing what death feels like. However, it is hard and challenging to research on this. facts are only brought out by the experiences of those who have been in challenging situations that almost took away their life.

It’s said that majority feel death has no pain and everything goes into total darkness. Also how deathfeels like depends on how your death occurs for instance death through an accident must have been painful.

Though you cannot say that it is death that is painful in that case, it is the physical body that was harmed and it was in pain. You can feel pain even when you are alive, be treated, then you feel relieved. So in this case we cannot say death is painful.

As a matter of fact, you cannot say you feel death physically but it is more of an emotional thing. It is as simple as trying to ask how does life feel. If you can answer how life feels, then definitely you will have an answer of how death feels in your own description.  

What doe science say after death

Science say that death is very peaceful. In death, the heart stops functioning and hence no blood circulation takes place. This makes all parts of the body to stop functioning and the sense of feeling is also gone.

This includes the brains which get loose and can’t feel the outer world or the environment around them. Due to this, our bodies nonfunctioning situation causes the body to start decomposing.

Where do Christians think we go after death

Death is only physical in Christianity. The soul does not die and baptized early Christians were convinced they would not die at all but would still experience the advent of Christ in their lifetimes. Christians go directly into the Kingdom of God without spiritual death.

Others were convinced they would go through the air to meet Christ returning upon the clouds of the sky: “Then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

However, some just miss interpreted this because Jesus came on earth to save your souls which is more important. The physical body will die and decompose but your soul will be saved and be delivered form tribulations.

In the early imminent expectation, the period between death and the coming of the Kingdom still constituted no object of concern.

An expectation that one enters into bliss immediately after death is also found in the words of Jesus on the cross: “Today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43).

Christians believe the antithesis to eternal life is not earthly life but eternal death. Christians believe when one has faith in God and obeys his deeds then he or she will have life after death where by the body will remain in the earth the soul will go to heaven.

Where do Muslims & Hindus think we go after death

Muslims view death as end of worldly life and the beginning of after life where there is a separation of soul from the body.

They believe that after death and burial two angles come to test the faith and that the righteous believers answer correctly and live in peace and comfort while sinners and disbelievers go through punishment. 

Where do Hindus think we go after death? Hindus believe that they can either be reborn and experience life once again, or be liberated from the cycle of rebirth.

Where do witches think we go after death

Since witch craft is not a religion, there are different answers from every witch. Some believe there is an afterlife where one becomes a ghost.

Some believe that death is the end there is nothing more after it while others say they can be trapped somewhere forever.

Conclusion:

Is there life after death is a topic that will live to be under research since there are no definite answers to the question.

We all have different beliefs as humans and this depends on sources of information that are pegged on the diverse background.

The act of having different religions and also the scientists complicate it more. It has left people to come up with answers to it depending on their beliefs of life after death.

This are questions that will live to be there in many generations to come until the day we all come into agreement of what to believe in.

Apart from science explanation of death in physical aspect, Spiritual death is diverse and all we have to do is believe and search for what is right religiously.

Living a purposeful and meaningful life is a goal that many strive to achieve. However, the motivation towards that goal differs.

Some people are focused on their current existence, while others believe that positive actions in the world will buy them a ticket to the next one which is heaven.
