Where do we people belong? Very much depends on the answer to this question for us people. This is so already in this world. As children one has asked us: "To whom do you belong?" We then said: "Mom and daddy". Would this displease us if somebody as adults us asks: "To whom do you belong?" Too bad that this asks us hardly anybody after the childhood the longest time of our life: "To whom do you belong?"
Unfortunately, there also only quite seldom is this question: "To whom do I belong?" Remains this question restricted to the childhood: "To whom do you belong?" Or shall this so perhaps have even a deeper sense? In the Christian faith we people are children of God. Actually we could the question our whole life "to whom you belong"? - answer so: God! This will be an answer of religious people. There really could be the esteem for this: "We people are children of God that is a philanthropic faith ".
May one ask in the various kinds of history of religion so:
How shall a religious faith be different than philanthropic? Or has this surprised some people two thousand years ago anyway: "The Sabbath is for the people and no the people for the Sabbath". So that we understand what is meant with that, one may venture the paraphrase anyway: Religion is there for the people and not people for the religion. Sabbath was at that time and there a perfect example for religion anyway. Also furthermore for two thousand years happened something as two thousand years ago in history of religion. Unfortunately, there was and there is also time related work of man in history of religion. From this there was also many a faith barriers. But the faith which is given to us by the heaven didn't go down.
This hope remain also to us now: The sense finding with the faith has remained us through everyone hindrance and the sense finding woken up with faith again and again: Is sense finding with the faith something like an original knowledge with us people so that the orientation remains unchanged for us that we belong to the great God and to the heaven, so that we find this orientation again and again: "Our home is in the heaven". There was already this shattering summary about the chaos of the dissipations, the chaos in the world history, the chaos of poverty, also intellectual poverty, for the chaos of the against each other, the summary already two thousand years ago: "They don't know what they do", “They are like sheep which don't have any shepherd ".
Still in the 20th century there were of the works of man millions of expulsion, millions of homeless and probably even more millions inwardly homeless.. But we have this orientation in the faith for two thousand years: "Our home is in the heaven." Apparent we get homelessly without this orientation also in this world and beyond this world. Do the common spiritual illnesses also arise from this?
"Our home is in the heaven "also in the life on the earth and beyond the earth". Without this orientation much is lost with us and for us, without this orientation we lose each other. So there can and will be a philanthropic world if we belong with pleasure to the great intelligence, to the great knowledge and to the great love of the great God and the heaven.
